There really are situations when your advice is appreciated, no question. QUOTE] What gives this group the right to decide when it wants my advice and when it doesn't? It is *everyone's* right to decide when to give advice. I give advice that I want, and not at your behest. But you are right about the teaching. I forgot the old addage: The teaching of fools is folly. I am wasting my time trying to teach any of you anything.

Geez, do we really need yet another flame war about something this trivial? I mean, if one wanted to be argumentative one could even argue that Bob's sample prime is "illposed" because the base it's written in isn't given explicitly. Sheesh ... life's just too short to waste on this kind of pointless bickering.

I think we need a popcorn eating smiley.(to indicate we're being entertained by a flamewar)
I listen to Mr. Silverman for the same reason some people watch Jerry Springer. Mindless entertainment.

Forgive my explicit pointing out of the symmetries in logic here, Dr. Silverman. I know you're aware of them all; I'm just doing it for the benefit of readers who might have failed to notice. Quote:

1) Despite the fact I have a 110 to 130 IQ(depending on what the test is on) I very much enjoy socalled mindless entertainment. 2) I'm sure there are many genius level people who have come to these forums and, whether they have your mathematical ability or not, consider you a dorkwad. Btw, Mystwalker, the first smiley is the one I'm familiar with and also the one I like the best. Would it be possible to add it?
