Further my post dt.May 24, 2014 9:16 PM (

A Math-teach participant has asked me privately to justify my charge against Wayne Bishop:
> Especially for the kind advice of Professor Wayne
> Bishop and others of his ilk:
> NO CLAIM IS BEING MADE HERE that the new concept I
> created (the 'One Page Management System' [OPMS]) is
> anywhere near as significant in the world of ideas
> as are the ideas created/ developed by people like
> Andrew Wiles, Grigoriy Perelman (and long before that
> by Bernhard Riemann, Isaac Newton, Wilhelm Leibnitz
> and other such intellectual giants).
> This disclaimer is put in here because Professor
> Bishop once had the gall to suggest that, in a
> message I had posted here at Math-teach (about
> Grigoriy Perelman and the Riemann Conjecture, I
> believe), I was comparing myself to Perelman! (Some
> ridiculous ideas to that effect)

Here is a link to the specific message from Wayne Bishop:
