[Readers would no doubt know that I promote something called the 'One Page Management System' (OPMS) [for the readers' ready reference, some information about the OPMS is attached to my message heading the thread "'Curriculum' is NOT the same as 'system' - some differences" - http://mathforum.org/kb/thread.jspa?threadID=2408198 ].

Over the years, Haim and Robert Hansen have made the patently false allegation that "OPMS is just empty list-making and nothing else (and is therefore trivial and worthless)" [words of that nature].

I have time and time again corrected this false impression that they have attempted to create - time and time again they continue repeating this blatant falsehood. (To be fair, Haim seems to have stopped repeating this blatant falsehood for some period of time now).

As Haim states: "Readers should draw the appropriate conclusions".
