Just a thought: Lou Tuss = Lutus. 1) Did mr. Lutus start this thread?
or 2) Did someone else (an anonymous troll) start this thread under
the name of Lou Tuss, expecting us to think that Lutus made this
thread for his own delightment?
3) Is Lou Tuss an existing human being?

Either way: Most of the persons involved (incl. Lutus) in this thread
treat each other with a genuine lack of respect. This discussion is an
example of how efficient, rational communication should _not_ be. Even
the name of the subject indicate that this discussion started on the
wrong foot.

If mr. Lutus has been accused for something in a rude way, he has
nothing to win by replying ditto. That goes for all of us. We don't
learn anything by throwing dirt at each other.

If anyone think it would interesting to discuss mr. Lutus statement:

>lim x -> infinity, 1/x = 0. This is a limit, not an identity. The
equals
>sign in the limit expression doesn't have its usual meaning -- in
this case
>it means "approaches," not "equals."

,then make a new thread where people can discuss this matters on the
conditions of efficient, rational communication.
