comment Projection of a hypersurface from a point
It is a bit harsh to downvote and vote for closing: Wesley has asked on MSE and has not received an answer that satisfies him. What is he supposed to do now?

comment Complex geometry text/research introduction for the analyst
Dear @Koushik, I think you should express yourself a bit more modestly when you criticize a book by a world-renowned specialist like Krantz. You are perfectly entitled not to like the book but you should give valid mathematical arguments, and not rudely dismiss it as "not a good book" and "quite horrible" without the shadow of an explanation.

comment What is the etymology of the term “perverse sheaf”?
What a cheap way to get reputation points: just invent a brilliant chunk of mathematics and 40 years later reap the benefits by remembering why you chose the terminology...

comment How does one find out what's happening in contemporary mathematics research?
This is a great question and I have voted to reopen. It is indeed a vital problem to know what is going on in research and since there is no easy answer, every bit of information (especially from top research mathematicians) is extremely precious. As a first step in the right direction, I would be very grateful to the closers if they told us a little about their own field of research and their contribution.
