OK now I see your point.
But you definitely don’t see mine.
I wasn’t trying to compute the percentage change from 0 to 0 and expect it would be 52%. I was just saying that when you go down 52% from 0, the outcome is 0. I think we can agree on that, right? 0 is 48% of zero. Admittedly, we can also state that 0 is third of zero, and that 0 is also half of zero, and also double of zero. All of that is valid. Right?
And that’s the funny part (or at least, trying to be funny) from my initial comment, because from zero you can state a lot of valid things even though those aren’t saying much actually. My comment was meant to be pure logic without much concrete meaning in it, and that was the joke.
But of course, whenever you try to compute THE percentage change from 0 to 0, you cannot, because THAT would be dividing 0 by 0.
That said, I never thought I would deal with someone so suspicious, and I never expected I’d have to justify everything I said with lengthy lines of argument. Even though I may have sounded rude sometimes, but that was not intended, I’m just a French guy not very used to doing complex debates on technical things entirely in English (yeah, people are very conservative in France in terms of speaking English, even in college and higher education), with someone who unexpectedly puts pressure on me to justify myself not saying nonsense and not being a "moron".
No offense, man! Please just relax and try to understand what I meant in the first place.
