comment (undergraduate) Algebraic Geometry Textbook Recommendations
I absolutely do not agree that Griffiths and Harris is frustrating. In my opinion it is actually one of the best algebraic geometry texts around, and by far one of the most geometric. I also think that having a firm grasp of the classical setting before moving to scheme theory will help a lot.

comment Does set $\mathbb{R}^+$ include zero?
I tend to use $\mathbb{R}_{> 0}$ or $\mathbb{R}_{\geq 0}$ and avoid that notation altogether.

comment Yoneda-Lemma as generalization of Cayley`s theorem?
I don't think that there is such an established notion. I meant it in an intuitive sense. For groups, you associate to $g$ the map which sends $h$ to $gh$. So $g$ is determined by how it acts on other elements. For a category, you associate to $A$ the functor which sends $B$ to $Hom(B, A)$, and $A$ is determined by these $Hom$ sets. I will see if I can come up with a suitable notion of action which makes this precise.

comment Thin categories and graphs (isomorphism of categories)
There should be { brackets, but they are lost in the formatting. On MO one can avoid that by using backticks (`) around formulas, but here it does not work. Any other workaround?
