Sorry I can't link to the question. I knew going in that I would get a few down-votes because the question was a little abstruse. I was willing to take my lumps. However, when the thread was removed, I got my points back. I wasn't expecting that. I that a normal result?

  • $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak, what is ironic is that the thread is behaving (to me who can't see it) like the "one" I was describing on the thread. It's like the gorilla in the basketball game. We are so intent on watching the basketball that we don't see the gorilla. We are so intent on looking at the interesting math that we don't see the significance of the one. $\endgroup$ Sep 7, 2012 at 19:15
