comment Direct proof to show that a set is closed
Your proof is a beautiful one-liner. Why would you want something else? A "more direct" proof will likely just explicitly reprove the facts you've used.

comment Does $G\oplus G \cong H\oplus H$ imply $G\cong H$ in general?
Thanks. Googling around, it looks like the OP's question is one of "Kaplansky's test problems" which people like to ask in various categories. Another one is, "If $G$ and $H$ are direct summands of each other, are they isomorphic?" The $G$ produced in Corner's paper obviously answers this problem in the negative for abelian groups.

Can you give a reference (or explanation) for how to construct the $G$ for which $G\not\cong G\oplus G$ but $G\cong G\oplus G\oplus G$?
