    More than I can say about Mr. Young, unfortunately... =) Anyway, it is not in line with our current understanding of quantum mechanics.

    Yeah, as mentioned in the very last paragraph I added to this wikipedia article, Eberhard's theorem proves that if the currently-accepted equations of quantum physics are correct, it must be impossible to use entanglement to communicate faster than light. Mr. Young has a sketchy and incorrect understanding of how entanglement works; it doesn't mean that if you do something to one particle, the other will respond in a way that could tip off people observing it.
