There keep cropping up assumptions about my background and I don't blame you for getting it confused. I hope no one thinks this is pretentious, because it's not. It's just that there are some things I know, but some things I have very little experience in, and they keep gettig mixed up. Knowledge of one thing doesn't imply knowledge of another. I wouldn't normally do this, but I think it might be helpful in avoiding any further confusion.
