It's probably just the usual way he interacts, no big deal.  He didn't
ask for real code to be provided, but used to base one's comments on,
please note; and I gave two real-life examples (a woodworking equipment
company in Italy bidding to supply some equipment to a Turkish customer
who prefers to get billed in their local currency; a factorial) without
any trouble and without needing to post the code (it's quite obvious).
