Wall for Dilaton

Please log in or register to post on this wall.
Dear Dilaton, old age is catching up with me (turned 80 in april), and  I cannot remember the disagreements that made the split from physics.se. Could you give me a hint to restart my memory?

Hi again, I found out what was the problem, when I hit "all comments"  the edit buton and the hidden came up, so no problem. I do not write often here and do not know the ropes

Hi, I have trouble in trying to edit my comments, no edit button. It could be my computer which is old. I typed again an answer to Flamma's comment because I could not see my yesterday comment, until I posted today's !! as I said my computer is temperametal. But how can I delete or revise a comment? thanks

Hi Dilaton. Do you know where Ron Maimon  is on the net now? He seems to have been blocked  in many venues. Anna

You are subject to an unconscious bias and you will regret your actions.

Hi Dilaton. I have problem answering questions since none of the tools appear to be available (e.g. links, italics, etc) that I always remember. Additionally live preview or preview do not work and the answer window appears tiny although I can expand it eventually. Something is wrong. Not sure if it is my problem alone or not but I guess someone has to check it.

Hi Dilaton.  I am interested in reviewing this paper https://arxiv.org/abs/1701.06567 but I am confused on how to submit it for review. Any help?
