I'm not sure how good an idea posting a thread like this is...

Re: hypocrisy marathon

Hypocrisy: pretending to have virtues that you don't. I was telling people what to do by telling them to stop. I also think it is wrong to go on and on explaining things. I mean really it is something you shouldn't do. Why do people need long explanations anyway? They don't, see? Shall I go on?

Re: hypocrisy marathon

Are you asking to have the thread closed?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: hypocrisy marathon

I agree, asking is a sign of weakness. Who needs his advice anyway?

I find it difficult to be hypocritical on demand. It is much easier for me when I am not thinking about it.
