A user is experiencing high anxiety about an academic issue. He has expressed clearly, multiple times, that (a) he is in agreement with everyone who has tried to reassure him, but that (b) his anxiety persists and is acute. He states that he has posted his question and deleted it twice and now here it is again for the third time: Is it unethical of me and can I get in trouble if a professor passes me based on an oral exam without attending class?
I wrote an answer which has disappeared along with one of his deletions. I would like to recover this answer and repost it at his new question.
Can the moderators merge his multiple threads, so my answer would show up? (I'm not sure if "thread" is the correct word.)
Or should I just have flagged his question to try to do this? I don't think my request would fit in the flag box....
