Perhaps your fear has clouded your reasoning, professor.

The original question's appropriate uses of the mathematical terms "Generalized Fermat", "Subfactorial !n", "Wilson primes", "Double Mersenne", "Fermat prime", and "Repunit" are unlikely to have been composed by someone with a "total lack of mathematical understanding".

Are you genuinely unable to discern, or at least politely respond to, the intent behind awkward wordings of mathematically-related postings? Or is it instead a matter of using this forum to vent anger that might otherwise, and less desireably, be expressed elsewhere in your life?
