I too thought that this forum had a lot of geeks and nerds. (I use those terms with admiration.) So, in the thread titled “Will Michael revisit ETTR?”, I made a feeble attempt at humor when I posted “Perhaps a better title for this thread would have been “Stalking the Reichmann Hypothesis”?
My post was meant to be a reference to the book “Stalking the Reimann Hypothesis”, a well known (among mathematicians) mathematical conjecture. http://www.chronon.org/reviews/stalking_riemann.html
Well, my post fell on deaf ears. Perhaps my reference was too obscure, or not humorous. Or, maybe the participants just aren’t as geeky or nerdy as I assumed.
More likely, I shouldn’t have made this post, but should have slunk off and hoped people would continue to ignore and forget my nerdy attempt at humor.
