I try not to get enraged, and insults are (usually) unproductive. Moreover, I am all in favor of discussion, especially with those who seem to me wrong. (One of the two of us, maybe both of us, is likely to be less wrong after the discussion.) In zylo's case, he does not engage in discussion because he does not address what others substantively say. That can be excused or at least ignored. But Archie's point is well taken. People come here for mathematical help. If they read Zylo, they may be harmed. If we wanted to do something productive, we could do a sticky on Cantor's proof and allow moderated comments.

I think enough has been said here so I'm closing the thread. If you disagree with this decision or have a reason why the thread should be reopened please PM a moderator. Thanks.
