Hi Leonidi,

I would have chosen 'abandon' myself. This needs to be investigated. Thanks for that.

Will you be investigating this privately, Alan?
Or are you interested in gathering and discussing further input openly?

Abandon? #4 (permalink) Wed Apr 03, 2013 7:27 am   Abandon?
 

Hi Teachers!

Well, the right choice in this question is abandon with options like
(a) stop
(b) leave
(c) abandon
(d) resign
?
Is stop not correct by no means?

Thank you,
Vladimir.
