Oh yeah, so you got spammed too. Was just going to tell you about it, but they weren't smart enough to figure out you're the wrong person to spam.
Hey, was actually stopping by to find out if there had been any progress on making part of the site immune to having it's posts removed when someone leaves.
Over on our blogs, we've been asking ourselves is there anything we could do to help this website or the cause in general. Mainly me, Sinclair & Phil Buchanen. It's probably a good time to assign jobs, when you seem to have people willing to help.
If I can figure out where to get internet access once I get to California where I'm leaving soon, I'd be happy to help.
I would say that not blocking translation services from this website would be a good idea, actually.
Linda, I would like submit an entry for the essay competition
I do not find the video helpful at all
Can you help me, giving me simple instructions?
Alternatively, I could email my essay to you and you could enter it for me.
The title of my essay is: ON CREATIVE THINKING IN MATHEMATICS
Re your note from EdB on the competition update, more entries would clearly be welcome. It's disappointing, though, that the content criteria have been changed and the maximum length reduced by half after a number of entries have already been submitted. I guess you now have one less!
Respected Madam Linda Laird,
I hava attended two international seminars of Dr Edward de Bono on March 2004 and Sep 2007 in Mumbai and belong to Oppressed Sections of the Casteridden Indian Society.
I am interested in a Movement for Learn-Teach Thinking Skill especially,in India at grassroot people, not limited to Elite Class of India. For that purpose, I established "Mahanayak Kanshiramji School of Thinking, based in Pune." Please go through the Interview of Dr. Edward de Bono in October 2000 with Shalini Singh of Economic Times.
To Teach Thinking Skill professionally will not change India to face the challenge of 21st Century. I stand to annihilate the Culture of Castes from India.
Let us work to basic problem of India, i.e. the Culture of Castes. I am concentrating up on this Monster of CASTES.
I am very attentive to listen form you about the happening with Dr. Edward de Bono on Castes in India and its process to annihilate for humanity.
Whatever done Western World by G3-Aristotal, Plato and Socrates, the same had been done by Manusmritis, Ramayan and Geeta in India. For that we no mentioning the names of culprits, but identifying by their Books which have divine conception.

Hope you're getting paid appropriately for what is obviously additional high quality work here on the website! Thanks for that newsletter.
I have questions and suggestions:
Where exactly would a person go to get the "banner" badge code to put on one's website? On this website, it is too easy to "lose" the location of certain pages, for some reason.
My questions are:
If my competition entry is longer that two pages, should I revise it even though I submitted it before the guidelines were changed? Or should I just leave it the way it is because I submitted early with a note about that condition in the comments?
Perhaps another prize could be awarded for all the people who did enter on time for the first deadline of the original announcement? It's not quite fair to change the rules on a competition for the people who did enter on time. Perhaps, there could be a sort of additional "recognition prize" for all of these people such myself? This "lesser" prize could be a small token such as a signed book or paper by de Bono or another more virtual prize ...or some other appropriate recognition or benefit?
