Seriously? How about your _PHYSICS_ posts in sci.math?
How about your made-up nonsense math garbage posts? Your only useful posts have been the ones on set theory; otherwise your posts are your experiments --failed from the onset, I believe --that do not belong here.

It is just you and your puppet tim sutter that believe your posts to be worthwhile. It is just you who considers yourself to be anything other than a walking turd.

To put my claim to the test: how about submitting your posts to a moderated site? But no one will accept them, because they are pure garbage. Your no better than those you decry below.
