We should be

discriminating, to a degree, about whom we spend our limited time with to get them up speed because we have limited time.

However, I also believe we should never write off any "regular citizen". People have different abilities to assimilate info and have different needs as to what techniques work for them personally to learn what is important for them to learn. Many children have difficulty with basic mathematics but that is no reason to write them off.

Please do a test Von; note how many times you read comments from DPers along the lines that "these people are a lost cause, unreachable". What odds do you think someone with that attitude going in can successfully reach someone that has yet to grasp the dire situation they must grasp. How would you like to have a teacher that strongly and repeatedly expresses the view that YOU cannot learn what that teacher is supposed to be teaching you.

We are ALL victims of the evil, the knowing victims-us and the ignorant victims-them.

I mean to rout you out!
