I got some really good answers there.

Strong people there in various fields of mathematics.

Mathoverflow is not a good place for such questions. It's more a place for research mathematics. But there is the all-level sister forum http://math.stackexchange.com/questions There any serious and focused math question is welcome, even homework, if it has the characteristic, that a mathematical answer can be given (and is expected at all).

i am gratefull for your attempt at help , despite not believing in it.

one can argue that the question needed to be asked differently , stated more like this or that.

but the point is in my experience it does not seem to matter much ...

as evidence that i tried i did post on your advised site , but got reactions similar to sci.math and mathoverflow ... not really surprising ;

if you check out who commented : the same people who are on mathoverflow and sci.math.

in fact i even got insulted * quote * then you are probably not in a position to understand much of what such a search would turn up * end quote *

im not saying these guys blocked or closed the thread because they know its me , it would not have mattered much who had posted it.

other people could have reacted too , but didnt in the period it was still unclosed.

and now the thread is closed , only leaving some bad comments about me.

just as i suspected , similar to sci.math , mathoverflow , wikipedia editors etc

i can honestly say i find most people unfair on the internet.

considering oneself a better mathematician without being able to give a proof or even a comment that matters is arrogant and unfair imho.

not to mention suggesting that the one who asks ( hard ? ) questions barely knows what he is asking.

and also the side-effect of scaring off people who are not so talented (yet) and new to math and afraid to ask questions after reading such comments is not good for math.

check out for yourself :

i might sound like a rebel.

but i did not behave impolite , yet got insulted.

the question was perfectly valid and i did not boost about myself in any way.

all in vain.

seems they only like to answer " homework questions " , generalized nonsense and set theory.

i realize that saying this will make me even less popular in the community , but i will not shut up for anyone !
