# What does Edgar Escultura think of Group Theory?

From what I've read of his work on FLT, I think Edgar Escultura is brilliant. I wonder why he hasn't gotten the recognition he deserves. Does anyone know where I can find more articles by him?

Eh, this was just an attempt to lure matt grime into GD. I don't really think EE is brilliant or care what he has to say about anything. I think it's beginning to annoy people, so I'll just let it go.
But just out of curiosity, did it lure you into GD?? How did you come across it- did it show up in the new posts results? Were you already browsing GD?

Aha! So it did lure you in. matt may have won this one, but I will find his weakness eventually. One day when he least expects it...

Oh, I mean, I've uh let it go.

Here is the URL

On the physicsforums.com homepage, use your browser to search (probably using Alt-F) for the phrase "Unanswered Threads" (without the quotes).

Plan B: Go to the bottom of that homepage and look for "What's Going On?". Look NorthEast of that phrase.

It's right beneath Dr. Michio Kaku's Forum.

OK, I know I'm not the brightest bulb on PF's tree, but I am looking exactly where you are telling me to look, and it's not there. Just so there can be no misunderstandings, here's what my screen looks like:

So, where is it?

Edit: It looks the same whether I am logged in or not, so it has nothing to do with my user profile.

That's very strange- it should be right to the left of Mark Forums Read, on the same line. What browser are you using?

13. Jul 23, 2005

### jma2001

I'm using IE6 ... yeah I know, not my choice, I am required to use it on this computer. Still, a simple HTML link should not be dependent on the browser?

### honestrosewater

Heh, I couldn't think of anything else.
I tried it with IE6: Same thing. When not logged in, there's no Unanswered Threads link. But when logged in, the link is there.
Maybe it has something to do with your user settings? No idea really.

The search goes back far- it returns 500 results, which I think is the max. I think if there were no unanswered threads, the search would just return the Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.

I wonder if it shows up for other subscribers.

According to the link: "it is set up for Admins, Super Mods and Mods to see the link. But you can add whatever usergroups you want to see it very easily."

So now, we just have to figure out why robphy, honestrosewater, and Townsend are all in the privileged usergroup, while I am not.

### mattmns

I see it too, maybe it has to do with contributors?

### Gale

i also see it, though i never noticed it before. maybe it has to do with older members?

To lure Matt, I think you'll have to put his name, or 'group theory,' or something else he's likely to notice, in the first words of the title. Since he probably doesn't ever look into this forum, he's going to have to see the link from the front page, and it cuts off into . . . after several words.

Yeah, I had his name at the very beginning of the first thread. He's also familiar with Edgar Escultura. I thought he used the new posts search, because several times I've noticed him post in one subforum, then in another, then again in the first one and such- unlike what you see when someone goes through each subforum in turn. But maybe he doesn't use the new posts search after all. Or maybe he's just not taking the bait. I'm getting over the joke- but now I'm curious about why none of the 5 or 6 lures worked.

News from the other side : Matt has seen the lures but not bit.

### Townsend

Do you think he would feel inclined to comment if someone were to make a thread that said something like:

Proof that $$1 \neq .9999...$$

How did you find out? You didn't just ask him, did you? :surprised

Oh dear, that would have spoilt all the excitement.
