SGrade's blog

Editorials are really useful, for sure! But sometimes in the editorials there is an explanation like "Obviously, this works this way". Or "Intuitively", "We can see", etc. In this moments I feel like I came to a math lesson and the professor says: "The proof of this theorem is obvious, don't you see?".

If it was obvious for me, I would solve the problem without the editorial. The ONLY reason I look into editorial is that the solution is not obvious for me. Would it be better if the editorial actually explained why it works this way?

Anybody feels the same?

Disclaimer: I really appreciate that the editorials exist and what their authors do. This blog is just to help both sides (editors and readers) understand each other a bit better.
