comment The End of (Mathematical) Times
@AsafKargila Well, probably because it is possible to downvote a question but it is not possible to downvote a comment. Regarding that house thing, this is the house of this community, not mine, not yours; but according to what you have written, I guess you see yourself as a more "important" member of this house. The fact that you have been here longer than me does not justify anything. Besides, my question does not hurt you, but the fact that it is closed hurts me. I am sure you can understand that.

@AsafKaragila This website is not "your" house, that is my whole point.

Seriously, how can you close a question when the community likes it? Unbelievable...

In any case, I do not intend to start the "great war of ego justification." I wish you luck in your future endeavours. Apparently, this website is not for me as some of you have mentioned.

comment The End of (Mathematical) Times
@guy, $\mathbb{R}^n$: There is no reason to kid ourselves regarding the famousness-acceptance function, not only in these kinds of websites, but in the real life as well. Example: mathoverflow.net/questions/38639/thinking-and-explaining (I greatly admire the author and have nothing against him, may he rest in peace). In this context, what makes the moderators "distinguished" is their so-called reputation points. The community, on the other hand, liked this question apparently as it received "upvotes" since its inception, but moderators just didn't care about it.

comment The End of (Mathematical) Times
This is sad; the editorial board should sometimes leave it for the community to decide or at least wait for a few answers for the asker's sake. What is ironic is that if I were a "famous mathematician," I am sure this would not happen, and all your "criteria" would just somehow fail. I consider your decisions unfair and unjust, especially against someone who is trying to contribute.

I am sorry to hear that. Regarding fact, references, expertise, etc., the opinions may be supported by historical evidence regarding how mathematics is developed, so the question at hand is not completely subjective. I think the answers may give insight about how mathematics is practiced or how should one practice it.

comment a limit involving derivative
Unless the function is flat, I guess the result is (via L'Hopital) $a^n$ where $n$ is the first natural number where the $n$th derivative of $f$ is non-zero. I don't see how convexity or $f(1) = 1$ will be relevant here...

comment a limit involving derivative
How would the information $f(1) = 1$ have any effect on the final result?

comment A simple inequality with logarithms and exponential
Are the logs $\log_2$ instead of $log2$?

Oh I got it now, you start from a blank paper but your line can self-intersect :)

comment 2 color theorem
You mean I pick an arbitrary graph, start from an arbitrary point, draw a line an come back, and look at the new graph?

comment Expectation Poisson Distribution
Note that $\sum_{k=0}^{\infty}\frac{x^k}{k!} = e^x$.
