No, it was the root of your ultimate downfall here, Troll Boy -- the greatest blunder of your sordid little career. You claimed Euler wrote the nonsensical equation S = Lim S. Your "evidence?" You had defaced a photo of the original text in question on which YOU had scrawled in red letters "S = Lim S". Very childish and very trollish. Euler did not write that. You wrote it, Troll Boy. The modern limit notation was not invented until after Euler's time by Weirstrass.

Did you think we wouldn't notice? And even months after your lie was originally exposed, you persist in this lie as here. Did you think you would get a different outcome this time? Well, you got your lying ass kicked yet again! When will you learn? Do trolls ever learn?
