Really?

Stefy, are you just going from thread to thread picking out all my typing errors? Because it sure looks like it from here!

Hi Tigeree;

How are you?

Hi Tigeree

I do go randomly from thread to thread. But I do not look for your typing mistakes. They show themselves to me.

Oh, hi bobby.

That was unexpected, but I'm good. No, I'm a little ecstatic. I was doing a few sum & difference of two cubes equations today.

Stefy, you're not actually helping anyone. The past is past, please learn & accept it.

& I do math, just not here.

If you do not do it here, you are not doing math!

Rubbish!

You can't tell that to the users that have math as half of their lives, and do some maths here, and a completely different topic elsewhere.

I'd like to think I can do math wherever & it still be considered math.

Sorry it is just a sad fact of life. Those other people, yourself included are not doing real math unless I get to see it.

That was serious joking. I guess no one will ever figure out why you do math everywhere else but here. Is it that bad?

It's just the intimidation again. An associated factor to my lack of confidence.

Do you consider that a problem?

For me? Absolutely not. You are just depriving yourself of the best help in favor of inferior help. That is your choice.

You are too worried about your supposed reputation. This is nonsense.

Very good! I admire a person who never changes their mind even when hopelessly wrong. That shows great courage to continue to lose when you do not have to. Bravo! Wunderbar! I am very impressed.

Sure, hold on to you reputation. That is what is important. Forget your sanity, integrity, health, wealth and popularity. Those are all second best to reputation.

Yeah...

It's quite valuable to me. I'm very self conscious, that's one of the ways I can figure to define myself.

Although... wealth is relatively important.

That would depend how you define 'good'.

If it were as good as I want it to be, I wouldn't be so worried about it. Actually that's probably a lie, 'cause I'm a perfectionist.

I'm good in a professional sense... or during the day.

I have a few different reputations for different people.

E.g. For my boss & my landlord, I'm an angel. To everyone else I'm a psychopath. ...More or less.
