For Christ's sake, he posted a simple assignment outline, more than
likely the original one he received and asked for help with it.
Obviously, part of the problem can be attributed to language. I assume
someone besides myself noticed where the assignment originated from.
All he did was ask for some assistance; not for someone to do the actual
assignment. Perhaps he could have worded it different; however, anyone
with an IQ over 2 would have been aware of what his intent was.

Personally, if I was his instructor, I would give him high marks on
initiative for going straight to the source and seeking answers. I am
assuming that you actually have some education, basket weaving doesn't
count, and have received assignments that required obtaining facts,
etcetera. It would have been so much easier and pleasant to have simple
listed a few links to documentation that he might be able to use rather
than attacking the OP in a condescending manner.

If you are really looking for e-mail addresses, start here:
<>. When you e-mail his instructors, please
CC me as well. I really want to see how this is going to turn out for
you. Be sure to include the OP's original post to this list as well.
