If one defines the "sum" of terms of an infinite sequence as the limit
of the sequence of "partial sums", provided of course that such limit
exists, which is SOP (standard operating procedure) in much of standard
mathematics, then one can speak of such sums unambiguously.

WM's compulsion to exile so much of standard mathematics from his world
of WMatheology makes it difficult to communicate with him on many points
of standard mathematics.
