comment Noun to describe a “typo-filled” letter
twodave, every complex software product has errors. That aside, blaming the spelling and typing errors in your message on the phone is intended to be humorous and most people would so understand it. Also, the version I gave attributes message brevity to the person sending it.

comment Could someone tell me the meaning of this short phrase?
The translation tag is for questions about “Determining English equivalents for words or phrases in other languages”. I removed that tag and replaced it with interpretation. Re context, you might edit your question and add some examples of what appears in the columns

comment Pronunciation of “-” sign, particularly in Unix commands
@JoeBlow, I don't find the option-flag use bizarre, but instead a problem because it stirs ambiguity into the meaning of tack as used in radio communication. The person receiving may wonder, “Should I write 20 and 2, or 20-2?”

comment Is the word “the” required in “…fundamental for the successful functioning…”
You can up your average syllable count by substituting Indisputably, for I believe that, and advancement for progress, and investigation for research.

comment One word for “Wild Wild West” - not the movie!
Bedlam derives from the name of a London hospital so thinking of it as capturing “the spirit of the phrase "the Wild Wild West" in one word” is dumbfounding!
