Not at all, you can check up my name from (IIT-B), India, graduated in (1987)

> We can use a lot of them and it is not about the individual numbers. The fact is, mathematics cares very little about the individual numbers or elements of anything. It is the general structure of things that is important. The fact that reals have the supremum property is what is valuable about them.

Some people do have some respect for themselves when they do notice the author's request not to have responses from fictional characters as you "Zeros"

Hence, no consideration to whatever you write unless you confess truly who are you

Remember what did I say in the first message, here again:

People hiding their true identities by using many fictional and masked names are not at all encouraged or welcomed to comment or participate in this important topic since we know in advance their well-exposed and so ill behaviours and intentions for their own purposes, and truly they have nothing to add or nothing to lose when they usually do participate so foolishly just to protect their own products that are full of pure global ignorance
