in thread Randomize an array

First of all, I did not recommend that sorting method.

Secondly in this very thread I already explained why this randomization technique could not possibly provide perfectly random answers.

So while I commend your desire to add useful information to old threads, I don't think you picked the right target in this case.

    I personally believe that I did never claim nor imply that you did; indeed you may notice that in the post you're replying to, I wrote: "a terribly wrong technique has been advertised" and the link under "advertised" points to a post of BooK. I replied to yours because one may have the impression that removing the "0 inconvenience" the technique may work after all: admittedly, I had overlooked that other post of yours, but then perhaps others would as well. I hope that you take no offense and that you will agree that the caveat earned much more visibility with the aid of these interventions...
