I noticed some mistakes in your post that I corrected.

All I have done since is repeating my posts over and over, hoping that someone with real credentials would consider me seriously. Repeating a lie or a nonsense over and over never makes it true.
> John Gabriel pretends he is the only real mathematician in the world. He claims that all mathematics since the Greek era is flawed, and that only him understand calculus. Using dictionary definitions instead of rigourous mathematical definitions, he built his "new calculus". Many showed him the flaws, but he dismissed with stupid arguments and insults anyone arguing against him. Contrary to Archimedes Plutonium, he is a math teacher, but he definitely failed undertanding calculus.
