A good deal brighter than WM.

WM cannot even correct his own errors, much less anyone else's.

He is bright enough to point out some of your more blatant errors!

Set theory says no such thing! What set theory says is that after every
digit potion has been filled with a 0, which would be the limit case as
described by WM himself, there are no digit positions not yet filled
with 0's.

> Analysis calculates that the limit has digits left to the point.

Analysis says no such thing. Analysis does not demand that any infinite
limit, as in this case, be representable by a decimal numeral at all.

It is only ignorant asses like WM who would claim that an unbounded
sequence will have a decimal numeral as its limit value.

We see a huge contradicton between the reality and what WM claims is the
reality.

And WM is one who should be.
