I notice the lack of students on this BBS- your reminiscences about past schooling, of the deficiencies of same, and of future pedagogy and how it'll just be like the past, are all based on experiences as a student in the past. I've been lurking in this board for about a half-hour now, but I've been using AWAD for half a year. What slings and arrows of interrogation do you have to throw at me?

Depends on what armour you wear.

I mean, what do you mean by : On dignified manner or conduct of the three times diminisher?

Could you not just as well be somewhat clearer? Do you expect a cross examination?

None that I know of Curuinor. Usually, somebody'll post an open question, or comment, of their own and people will respond; like what just happened with you now.

If somebody has a question just for you, you'll probably get a personal message. You'll have a little envelope that flashes beside your board name at the top of your screen, to let you know you've got a message.
