On a serious note, I appreciate your candour but it would be beneficial to the person who started this thread if you could contribute in a more meaningful way. As things stand, your posts address not the question but the help provided by other posters. If you feel the information provided is incorrect that's OK, but try giving evidence to back up your claims, with clear examples. Don't make the original poster do all the work. Make it easier on them and for them. After all, communication is the point, right? Try looking at this forum as a way to help students understand what it is that you see that's wrong with what's already out there (be it a book, a site, or a contributing member's response). Most importantly, consider acknowledging the contribution of others, even if those contributions stem from opinions that differ from your own. Knowledge is power, in all its shapes and irregular forms. Given your present knowledge and enthusiasm I believe you would be a great asset. However, given your style of expressing that knowledge, your intentions come across as serving only to perpetuate the destruction of human diginity and spirit on this Forum.
