    Why can't you borrow from other people's writings or posts, without attribution? Is that what you are asking?

    It is unethical. Possibly even illegal. So, no, it should not be done.

    7777777, thank you for providing citations for your sources... guess a bit late; better than never. You also edited those in pretty late. Though in this case, it helps the record, ever so slightly...
    The only problem with it, aside from it being questionably on topic, as the topic is a bit of humor in any case, is that it was selective cherry picking.

    Perhaps 7777777 was making a nomination.
    Neverfly and mathnerd like this.

    7777777's idea about the largest natural number seems quite appropriate for the golden ratio award, in that it can be refuted immediately by adding one. Nonetheless, I'm still working on a formal write-up for one of John Gabriel's howlers in circular reasoning.

    I'll add 7777777's largest integer to nominations with this and for John Gabriel, only one claim of his this year

    I make a nomination: all those users here who accept dy/dx but, at the same time, deny that dx is an infinitesimal

    Your nomination is rejected on the basis that it is mathematically unsound, nowhere in the definition of standard derivation does it mention infinitesimal or the likes.

    However if you feel otherwise, please provide an epsilon-delta definition of derivative that either mention it being infinitesimal by a renounced mathematician, or a book used in multiple real analysis courses, you'll need to cite at least 2 courses from proper universities that state they use it, and then the book itself, page and definition number.

    If you can do that I will accept your nomination if you can state a single person to it.

    I don't play your games.

    nothing depends on what you accept.
