Even if it is simple I really want to find a name to the department so it won't change and so i can communicate the "proper" stable link (better if i want to invite people to teach as well).

Thanks a lot.

Your Servant agrees; it may seem a little, or more than a little, strange.

Cesar Minoru Harada

No.

Section 05: Question: Is It a Personal Convention, Or Something to Do with Me?[edit]

Or is it because your personal convention (mystical dyonisac ?) Or is it because I said i go to the Royal College, or because my first name is Cesar ?

Cesar Minoru Harada

Section 06: Answer: No.[edit]

No.

Section 07: Question: Am I Going to Have to Do That?[edit]

Will I have to say "your servant" when i become an experienced wikipedian myself ?

No.

Section 09: Question: Am I Going to Have to Do That?[edit]

Will i have to say "your servant" when talking to students ? Is it to achieve Internet neutrality ? Thanks a lot.

Cesar Minoru Harada

Section 10: Answer: No.[edit]

Dear César Minoru Harada,

Your Servant does not refer to himself in that fashion for any of those reasons. He does so because he is an Orthodox Christian Evangelist; it is his Work to be of service to the Servants of God If you are a Servant of God, Your Servant is indeed Your Servant.
