This is what you don't get, and you refuse to be taught:

There IS consensus: We all know that in different

situations, one handles 0^0 differently. You're "solution"

is to do nothing.

No, you've presented nothing that deals with 0^0. All of

your statements are about nonzero bases, so 0^0 is not

dealt with, it is simply ignored. I.e., you've done

nothing.
