Set theory has certainly not corrupted analysis to anywhere nearly the extent that WM is trying to corrupt it. > > > (even though saying log_10(oo)+1 = oo is not nonsense). > > Correct. > And moreover we know that [lgx] + 1 gives the number of digits of x.
Then, according to WM, ln(-1) + 1 = 1 + pi*i must be the number of digits in -1.

Since analysis, properly done, shows no such thing, your question is moot.
Analysis can show that the limit VALUE is oo in the extended reals, but does not presume to claim that there is a decimal, or any other place value based numeral, representing that limit value.
