comment Word for describing process of walking, going on foot
@jwpat7, Good catch. I my haste, I confused homophones. Gate and Gait are not the same word.

comment What do you call hypothetical inhabitants living on the Moon?
I like Regos, as it ties into the structure of the moon, and could be a pejorative from an Earther.

I really like the word "disfluent." Excellent answer!

comment Word/phrase to mean something that just happens once
@ghoppe, that sounds a bit like a soap opera.

@fluffy, your comment should be an answer.

comment Wishing someone good luck in continuing something without yourself without sounding hypocritical or sarcastic
@T.E.D, sorry about that. The 'to' was left over from a previous revision, and my eyes didn't see it until you pointed it out. I agree the exclamation mark could be construed as unprofessional.

comment Polite synonyms for “a——hole-ish” behavior
@Broiyan, my point in listing all of the above was to say that you would have to pick the exact meaning you wished to convey before picking a single synonym.

+1 for the touch of satire. I love it!

comment How are “i.e.” and “e.g.” pronounced?
@Greg, remember "Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum viditur," which translates into "Whatever is said in Latin sounds profound."

comment What is another word for “boss” for a company with a flatter hierarchy?
@T.E.D., you're right. He also didn't like the "Team Leader" moniker, so "Team Lead" is not much different. I would suggest "Team Facilitator."

comment What is a better way to name “The Wrong Question”?
How about "You're solving the wrong problem."

comment “Username”, “user name” or “user-name”
@Mark, I have no problem with using "User ID" or "User's identification code" when referring the the user's identification. I am, however, very big on consistency. If the development teams uses "UserName" as a field name and variable name inside the code, reference these elements in technical documents, there is a better than even chance that this phraseology will leak through to the end user. In that case, I'd prefer to use the same term they used so there won't be a document referring to the same item by two terms.

comment “Not hindered with any knowledge”
@Mike, I agree. I do, however, like the additional formality imposed by the "not".

I was working on the same answer when you posted! Great minds think alike.

comment Use of “it” before “sufficeth to say”
@A.Uysal, the King James Bible was first published in 1611, and language has shifted somewhat since then. The -eth endings gradually shifted to an -s ending (e.g. "goeth" to "goes", "thinketh" to "thinks".) While you are correct about the meaning, I wanted to point out that the usage was common to most (if not all) texts of the era including Shakespeare, and not confined to only religious texts.

comment More formal way of saying: “Sorry to bug you again about this, but …”
I like your sandwich approach (i.e. Nice-comment + not-so-nice-comment.) It is professional, cordial, yet communicates the intended message well.

comment Whence came the usage of the word “product” in cosmetology (specifically hair care)?
+1 for Whence. Good question, though.
