And apparently hard for the GP to unlearn his academic abuse.



What/who does "GP" refer to?


>> What/who does "GP" refer to?

Grandparent. Two posts up the hierarchy from the person who used the term "GP".


Thank you.

So this is a personal attack then. Frankly, I expected better from the HN community. It looked more evolved when I was just an occasional visitor prior to joining. Rather disappointing.

It seemed like a bit of a snipe maybe (or a joke where they forgot the smiley). I went back and re-read your original "GP" comment and it seemed like you had encountered a number of students who had trouble as a result of such teaching. The snipe implied your experience was just your own personal problem, which seems false in looking at it again. Relax, it's just people you don't know responding to someone they don't know.


You have some pretty bold claims here and not much to back them up. If you gave us some examples or studies you'd be highly upvoted, in my experience.

Anyway, I appreciate your viewpoint.
