Cannot post

Post Number:#1  Postby Atman » July 1st, 2016, 6:35 am

Hi there,

I'm wishing to send this post, as a reply in a thread on mathematical Platonism:

"Hi there,

Thank you for an interesting thread.

Allow me to be pragmatic.

What difference does existence and/or "existence" make to anything? Does anything change if you leave it out?

In short, why include it ?


A computer generated message advises me that there are too many spelling mistakes in this post

One option I am given is to contact Scott, but when I do so, I am advised via computer -generated message, that I have not been a member long enough to be allowed to use the PM service.

Is this site for real?

Try and resend it with:
a small t for thanks.
Put a period at the end of your message.
Do not sign your name. (AtMan may be perceived as a typo)
One question mark has an unnecessary space after the word.

That is what I would try if I were you.
This site can be frustrating for beginners.
All you need is love- (But not the one from narcissists)

The biggest problem is probably the space before the question mark. That appears to be a typo.

A smaller issue is the use of an in-post signature. Signatures are to be set in the control panel, not manually appended to each post.
