Oh, and if it wants feathers, it's going to have to grow hair first (hair and feathers both come from follicles). Tough to do when you're covered in scales.

So, you are suggesting that feathers evolved from hair? Are you sure about that?

Can you name any other fake primitive bird from China that managed to temporarily fool a couple of paleontologists?

My bet is that he can't name any fake, primitive bird from anywhere that fooled paleontologists. Archaeoraptor did fool a few amateurs, but the first qualified paleontologists who examined the fossil recognized it as a fake at first glance. They proved it with CT scans and concluded that the fossil was composed of 3 to 5 separate fossils.

One sad thing, the forward part was of a previously unknown primitive bird, while the hind part was from a previously unknown maniraptorian, theropod dinosaur.

In short, Archaeoraptor didn't fool any qualified paleontologist.

Right!
Sounds like a lizard, doesn't it?

Also sounds like a cat.

I'm just saying that a hiss isn't evidence of anything.
