Suppose that, as a person with keen interest in Maths, I decided to create a Maths forum. Suppose that I told everyone that I found novel Maths methods that would benefit them. Suppose that I told them that using my methods, I managed to derive a number of breakthrough results, and that I won many prizes as the result. Suppose that I shared my methods with my forum members, who would try to apply them in their own studies. Suppose that I also imposed a strict order on my forum so that anybody who would oppose my methods in any form, would be banned. Suppose that if anyone reported any problems with my methods, they would be banned too, in particular all these members who said they failed their exams as the result of following my advice. Definitely all those who would say anything negative about my methods. If they tried to talk about these issues elsewhere, I would do everything to either delete their comments from other forums for example by contacting forum owners and issuing threats, or their accounts from other services, and discredit their reputation, by making up various claims about them. Or, I would go after them and threaten them with lawsuits, or threaten to destroy their online presence. Suppose that, on top of all that, I did not really have Maths education and many of my claims about my knowledge were completely made up.

This of course, is a completely hypothetical scenario. :) Nevertheless, it is useful for the sake of conveying the key message.

So, if you think that in such case, it was the fault of the person who trusted me and followed my advice, and my actions were completely faultless and justified, then I do not think that there is anything that can make you see the absurdity of the situation.
