Claiming ignorance is reason for a warning?

  1. Feb 18, 2007 #1
    I stated that I'd seen some derivations of the Shcrodinger equation so I put them up and made it clear I had no idea if they were correct, they were wrong and kindly Jtbell explained why? I got warned for it? Why? I was only asking a question, it's not misinformation if you clearly state that you have no idea whether it is correct; can anyone explain to me where and in what way this is misinformation? Honestly admitting that it could be wrong?

    You should probably PM jtbell, if he gave you the warning.

    Since this is an issue over a warning, and not something generally relevant to others on the board, I'm going to lock this thread. Please contact the mentor who issued the warning if you would like further clarification or wish to dispute it.
