Does WM now claim that finite sequences of digits cannot represent real

Countably many reals can be represented by finite digit sequences.

In fact, ALL of the natural numbers can be so represented without even
the need for any decimal points.

The point is that MOST real numbers (uncountably many of them) CANNOT be
represented by TERMINATING decimals, even though infinitely many of them
can be so represented.
At least in the proper mathematics that is free from the idiotic
corruptions imposed by WM's worthless world of WMytheology.
