@TheArtist: There are copyright laws, I think, that protect a person's online individuality. If not, then you better be lobbying for it. Otherwise you'll have to deal with Sherlock and Holmes. Know what I'm saying? (This sentence titled as "Nick's debating skills" is licensed CC BY-SA 4.0)
@Sawarnik I've heard the community managers tell us that it is not acceptable for someone to have the same name or avatar as a moderator. I don't know if there is any written rule that would back that up, but it seems like a good rule of thumb.
@rob john thanks for the info :) Does this only apply to moderators and people with real pictures? What about my name , which isn't my real name. Anyone could call himself "the artist" , so is this valid? That one can copy another's identity as long as you don't have his/her real picture or like U know
@Hippalectryon: Well, long story short the reason that it's on the starboard is this: @UserX said the pun corresponding to master debater and someone flagged it thereby causing a disturbance in the MSEforce which caused @RegDwigнt to come into the room and reply to that message.
@Chris'ssis: Immensely different. If you want to measure the education standards of the population of an entire country, go to a financially weak high school there. Those students determine the future of that nation and of the world.
If you want me to be an expert in these kind of things, you're completely wrong, I'm not an expert, but I can look around at the countries around my country and see how things are. I mainly refer at the stuff that is taught, not at how deep they teach you the stuff that is recommended to be taught (here the differences can be huge between any two high schools).
I'm working with a complex number math library, where a complex number is represented by an object with two properties: `real` and `imag`, where `real` represents a real number, and `imag` represents the coefficient in front of the imaginary number.
Will it be fair to say that if `imag` is set to 0, then the object represents a real number, e.g. $a + i0$, where $a$ is the number represented by `real`?
Here's a different angle on my question. So let's say we had the following expression: $a + ib$
If $b$ is $0$, then is the above expression considered to be in the set of real numbers, or is it still in the set of complex numbers? I'm asking because I'm about to say to someone that $a +i0$ is a real number, but I might be horribly wrong about that.
