comment Which math paper maximizes the ratio (importance)/(length)?
I think the really impressive thing is the paper has no mathematical symbols in it (it must have been tempting to add at least an $\epsilon$).

comment Is there a non-explicit characterization of the Specht modules?
@DavidSpeyer You mentioning that was definitely worthwhile (I had no idea that that was the case).

comment Status of Borho and Brylinski's irreducibility conjectures?
@GeordieWilliamson By the time I saw you talk about this, I'd forgotten this question; I think the inverses of the elements you give should be a counterexample to the conjecture above. Do you feel like adding that as an answer?

comment Beilinson-Bernstein localization: $\mathfrak{g}$ action on $G$-equivariant sheaf
@NilayKumar The function $g$ is the derivative of f with respect to $a$. This is proven exactly like the multiplication rule in first year calculus.

comment Deformations of associative algebras and Hochschild cohomology
You're really trying to reinvent the wheel here. This is all in Hochschild's papers "The deformation theory of rings and algebras I-IV" from the 60's.

comment Mixed Hodge structure and cup product
Also, seriously? 3 close votes? I understand it's not the best written question and the answer is reasonably "well-known," but mixed Hodge structures are too basic for this site now?
