Here is some reaction to this post from another community. I share it to both acknowledge that they're correct and to compare that community with this one.

 

I must agree with much that is said there. However, your post seems to have gathered a lot of attention, so you're doing something right, much more than myself.

To clarify, I believe teaching should consist of teasing (cultivating interest for it) and after that dumping knowledge. Most teachers fail at the first part. I personally lost interest in a few subjects for this very reason, later discovering they were really cool.

This post was a success in 'teasing', the numbers clearly show that.
