Not one of which posts contains an original definition of what the
alleged "equivalency function" actually is, only a lot of crap by Ross

I find a citation from r 9/22/99 In which Ross states, what may well be
Ross' original "definition" of his alleged "Equivalency Function" which
as any mathematician can plainly see is not a function at all, and is
only equivalent to nonsense::

" Consider the function
f(x, d)= x/d
for x and d in N.  The domain of x is N from zero to d and the domain of
d is N as d goes to
infinity, d being greater than or equal to one.
I term this the Equivalency Function, and note it EF(x,d), also EF(x),
assuming d goes to
infinity."

Anyone who would call that mess a function, when it is either two
separate functions or infinitely many depending on which part of the
"definition" one is reading, is no mathematician.

Ant the only thing it demonstrates is Ross' total inability to think
mathematically.

I do not find any area of mathematics which would not be improved by its
total absence.
