    Maybe, but a sense of humor is not what makes an adult; a sense of "when and where" might.

    I agree with you, stapel! If I were that child's parents, and I saw what Denis wrote, I'd be very upset. The tutors, especially, are "ambassadors" for this site and they should conduct themselves with dignity at ALL times.

    I will, from this moment on, conduct myself with absolute dignity,
    and smile twice weekly, and never wonder again if boys/girls
    look at girls/boy, or other similar instances of wonderment.
    I'm just an imagination of your figment !

    Thank you!

    Again, Rachael's mom, we apologize for the behavior of a certain member of this board. It shouldn't have come to this, but I hope you and your daughter will continue to come here for any math help you may need.

    I'd also advise that, in the future, your daughter not use her "first name and last name" when creating a screen name on a message board.

    "QUESTION: do you listen in class? or watch the boys?"

    That was meant purely as humor:
    if you 2 (stapel and happy) see more than that, YOU are the sicko's!

    Plus I didn't see any "concern" in the mother's post (IF it was her).

    And I don't see your names as moderators...

    I had thought this was just an accidental lapse, an oversight of the possible age of the poster, but now I'm starting to worry....

    **** it, Eliz, can't you SEE I was only trying to joke/tease?

    I've been doing tutoring for over 3 years, at various sites, and NEVER
    have been accused of anything like what you and happy are inferring.

    I'll agree that I'm sometimes sort of trigger-happy with humor, and will
    do my best to be more careful...

    I've always thought HIGHLY of you, like the way you handle problems;
    but not so with our Mister happy, who seems to be constantly "lurking"
    in the background, stepping in now and then with a "holier than thou"
    attitude and absolutely no help to the students.

    Yes, it really was her mother who made the last post.... I really was not upset about the coment, it seemed a little strange but I always sit with her while she is on line so I was not worried about any strange behaivor how ever this post seem's to be getting out of control... and probably should be ended my Daughter's response was in defence she takes her work to heart and even ended up crying her self to sleep because she felt stupid that she could not figure out the answer... she was thrilled for all the help you provided. However with the way this post got out of control she will not be using this site with her name on it instead we created a new one under a new name and will continue to get help when needed please let's put this matter to sleep....so to speak, and move on to the next question.
