In summary, the conversation revolves around trying to get a person to participate in a discussion on Group Theory and Abstract Algebra. The group is attempting various strategies to get the person to join, including using clever titles and links to related discussions. The conversation also touches on the idea of tempting the person to join by hitting them where it hurts.

Just keep bumping this until he takes the bait.

do you think it will work?
 
  • #3
He'll probably see it and then realize it's bait and just ignore it without responding.

What is that problem that has yet to be solved, zeta 2 or something?

"Group Theory" and "Abstract Algebra"

Well if you put "Group Theory" and "Abstract Algebra" in a title, it just might get his attention. Or, put a post with link to a post in a GD thread, but it has to be related to the aformentioned topics or "Number Theory" :biggrin:

...or try "Group Theory dismissed as nonsense". :biggrin:

So, is he the last person up there :rolleyes: who hasn't sunken to our level down here yet? And you're all trying to tempt him in?
 
  • #9
I prefer to think of it as he's the last person still incapable of achieving our level of bliss and we're simply trying to help him find true happiness.

It took about a year to finally suck me in here, although I did always post in P&WA. There could be hope.

That boy sounds scarily clever!

Good, can you give us any insights into the mind of a GD-avoider?
I think being nice and playful has failed. We need to hit him where it hurts.

See what happens when you get up at 5 am and try to find your slippers to go post on GD
