This cheeses me off…

By Murray Bourne, 16 Jan 2006

My Interactive Mathematics site has a "Comments? Questions?" facility.

Some users ask a question, but do not leave an email address, so I cannot respond to them. In such cases, if it is a good question, I will include it (with answer) in the site in due course.

But sometimes users will ask a question and they include a legitimate looking email. I will spend time replying and then send the mail. But then it kicks back saying the user's email does not exist. Grrr... 🙁

I'm considering setting up a discussion forum instead. Would this be worthwhile?

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
