comment I think I solved an old problem, can someone please check it for me?
I am grateful that David Speyer has responded in comments and although my approach may end up working out, as posted it is not a correct solution. I will however continue working on the problem.

comment Existence of a zero-sum subset
@DavidSpeyer thank you for checking this. I believe you have pointed out a serious mistake in my solution, and I will update the answer again if I can find a way past a case like the one you mention.

comment Etiquette when answering questions from less math-oriented users
@AsafKaragila I don't recall ever disagreeing with a position you have taken, including in this situation, it's just that I don't think you have made yourself look very good. If it's too frustrating to deal with a student, my advice is just leave them alone and let them work things out without your help.
