It certainly seems as if someone or something has forbidden WM to use it.

Analysis says nothing about the limit of the set of nonzero digits, but
does say that the limit of the sequence of numbers involved is NOT A
NUMBER. And being not a number need not have any digits at all.

We start with the infinite set of digits to the left of the decimal
point, and while we change their values, at each step will still have an
infinite set of digits However the sequence subsets of that original set
having non-zero values has the empty set as its limit, as each digit
position can be shown to eventually have value zero and keep value zero
thereafter.

But of course, this is much to complicated o WM to sort out, so he keeps
objecting to the obvious.
