Hi Nehushtan;

For one thing you should not be reading my answers. That is not a good idea if you want to maintain your sanity.

For another, you have come in at the end of the movie. I have asked ganesh a long while ago when I was the only one answering whether I should answer or omit.

Hi;

But why does that change anything? It is ganesh's wishes, it lets him know how I am doing. Whether the questions are too tough or not, or even if I have looked at them.

The hidden text is sort of a private message between him and I. It should not disturb anyone else, that is the purpose of hidden text. I am a little embarrassed that people are seeing how dumb I am but that is part of the learning process.

Hi;

That is okay, I will ask ganesh if there is some other method of me indicating I looked at the question but could not answer it. I will do that if you agree to continue to participate in thread. I wish to make you happy, do we have a deal?

Hi ganesh

Here lies the reader who will never open this book. He is forever dead.

Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most. ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment

Hi ganesh;

I have been asked to come up with another method of posting when I do not know the answer. Instead of using a hide button I will just say no answer. If that is okay with you.

1290) No answer.

This is your thread so please advise as to whether this format is acceptable to you too.
