Greggie, I already posted an alternative algorithm, so your smart money is as stupid as your general 'contributions,' to use the word loosely. Stop "protecting" Wayne. I just would like to see what he learned and, if possible, how he'd try to get it across to non-professional math people. No ambush. But even if there were, Greggie, you'd think Wayne would be happy to share with others besides me.
If this list weren't a degenerate rats' nest, there would be no need for your paranoia. But you trust no one, and no guarantees of a truce are ever accepted. I think I stopped trying in that regard four years ago or so, but once in a while, I forget myself and think I'm dealing with real people. Silly me.
