Apparently, an anonymous moderator felt like issuing me a warning for a post he or she may have seen me post over a week ago. Either this person holds a grudge against me, has nothing more productive to do or is trying to pull my strings. Well, you successfully managed to do it. Look at my posting history. I form part of the pioneers who sought to turn OpenStudy from a homework-answering machine to a system based on mathematical maieutics. If you think that one of my answers to a user's question seems like "I'm doing all the work for them," then I would suggest that you learn some mathematics because you must suck really hard at them, with all due respect. There are certain things that are best taught certain ways. This is exactly why not everyone can become a teacher. Anyway, this is why I dislike so much when administrators decide to grant moderating prowess to begging users with too much free time on their hands.
Lol really, they gave you a warning for that I would rather have a user present their work so that the asker may at least see how the answering person arrived at their answer. I can't stand people who come in answer the question for the person then leave, what kind of help is that. I highly doubt this site was made as a cheaters cheat book.
Wow, who would give @across a warning. I mean, really....
Just to clarify a bit of confusion here, it is my full belief that the warning was accidental for the most part. It was triggered mostly (I say "mostly" because warnings do not happen automatically, so a moderator had to have actually clicked the "warn" button) by an abuse report filed by a user who appears to have made an account for the sole purpose of filing erroneous reports.
Hello! That one was me.. Very sorry about the confusion here. For an odd reason someone was filing abuse reports for posts that were over 5 months old, unfortunately I didn't notice the date until it was too late. I had a quick look in your profile and did see that there was a more recent "giving answers" (this was the post I saw, admittedly I'm not that strong in maths: http://openstudy.com/users/across#/updates/50394557e4b05acbc95fb369 ). So I didn't follow it up any further and assumed (perhaps incorrectly) that it was a good idea just to let it stand. I am very sorry about the confusion and I hope that this does not change your outlook of Openstudy.
I want to thank @KingGeorge for taking his time to clarify things up for me. I had thought that a member of the staff was trying to pick on me once again. I am glad that that is not the case, though, as I would not want to go through something like that again. I must admit that I am very sensitive. Regarding my reply to that question you posted, @TranceNova, I had to "reword" it completely after seeing that ghazi had gotten a second ahead of me; when it comes to variable or functional substitution, differentiation or simplification, to name a few "mechanical procedures," it is best to guide the user through the step-by-step process rather than to incite him or her to come up with it on his or her own. It is a common, tested and effective pedagogical approach to instilling mathematics into the heads and hearts of young students these days, as subjects like these are not as intuitive as, say, differential geometry. Moreover, I follow a user's history before deciding to help him or her to get a better feel on how they learn. This is a confession that I tend to be selective, though. Thank you for your time.
Congratulations to across !
