Re "Can you please quote the first sentence that you're disputing" you say "The line in question would be 'The intern used a mouse to select the original 3 on the screen, then typed 4,'" Then re "you denied the first-hand report in my blog post" you say "I didn't deny it." Huh?

The sentence is a first-hand report of my observations of what the interns were doing. You're in denial of the report. Your argument for this denial is that the report implies that the interns had "a fundamental lack" of "basic word processing knowledge". Did I get that straight?

Right. I apologize. Your lede from your student not being helped with selecting all items and double clicking the numbered list icon is a totally pedagogical case for introducing LaTeX as the ultimate solution.

Not a student of mine, and not what my blog post says. You appear grossly misinformed regarding the level of experience of typical users; on this absurd basis you denied the first-hand report in my blog post; rather than admit error and learn something, you now add random noise.

I didn’t deny it. I claim the institute the students are on and have been on are lacking in education basics. Also the student seems exceptionally misunderstanding of why to use computers - maybe a 101 course needs to be introduced
