comment Is there a term for the dot numbering system: 10.2.5?
As stated in the "answer" I don't see this as an answer. Should I remove it, make it community wiki, edit it to make it shorter or whatever... please let me know here in comments. Preemptive note for the mysterious downvoter: show yourself!

comment English equivalent for “Don't burn your house to smoke out a rat!”
@Law29 Right. I went and checked. In the movie Entrapment (1999) - a few minutes after an hour in the movie the character "Mr Conrad Greene of Kuala Lumpur" (played by Maury Chaykin) delivers the line "Confucius, he say: Don't use cannon to kill mosquito." (Tongue-in-cheek) [Quote transcribed from the movie]. Edit: the quote is not in the screen play.

"Don't burn your house to fright a mouse" seems a good alternative.

It may be semantic versioning - or do you want to something that is not about versions at all?

comment Single word for “time of the day”
Are you looking for the name of the group of words that contains "morning", "afternoon", etc... I know those as parts of the day. So maybe daypart (mentioned above by Dan Bron) could be adopted for this use?

comment Is there a word for hate against religions or a specific religion? Is there a single word for religious intolerance?
Consider the word Antitheism. By the way, my first guess would also has been "antireligion" - but it seems to be you are looking for a word for hate to any different than your own religion, and not against religion in general, Is that so?

comment “How do we call (something) in English?”
Kind of, yet saying that it "is incorrect" is - let's say - hard to swallow. What the article says is that the word "how" asks for the manner of doing something and that's not the intention people have when they ask "How is this called in English?". So asking that in particular doesn't make sense. Still in general the combination of "how" and "call" is not incorrect, it just means something else, so it is a matter of finding the right context to show that "How do you call that" is not incorrect - it asks for instructions, mediums or means to call that.

You would have to call the help center to issue your complaint. - How do you call that? - by phone, of course.

comment Words whose pronunciation remains the same with the last four letters removed
@Marthaª A strange dialect? Kind of: I'm not a native speaker, that's my dialect... Aside from that, you are more strict. Before your reply, I didn't know there was something called "perfect rhyme"... you did encourage me to look it up, but all I've read is from Wikipedia. And since, I guess mine are imperfect rhymes.... or not even that? From my point of view, It's hard to tell without a public official set of rules to look at.
