comment Should I use a plural when describing a state? Such as SingleProductMode vs MultipleProductsMode?
that's because when I first wrote my question, not only did I mention "Single Product Mode", but I also mentioned "SingleProductMode" if used as a variable name in programming. Then people say "programming is not English"

you said "In your code, you can call it anything you like"... so that's the thing, the manager actually asked me to rename the variable. I think it could make sense to follow the general English usage rules when naming things

Actually, this question could be clearly valid, if I am asking about, a user manual, say for a thermostat, which describes the thermostat having a Single Air-conditioner Mode, and a Multiple Air-conditioners Mode. Why do some people think it has to be related to programming and close this question down?

comment Should I use 10 cent words or $2 words?
I suppose, if I am writing in general, then it depends on what kind of a world I live in (which changes from the 80s to the 90s, to the 2010s). But then again, it can be if I am in a city, it is a different version of a "world" if I drive 30 minutes to another city, or maybe if I just walk 10 blocks in one direction in a city, it could be a different world.

Yes, so in a user manual, it could involve a switch that when you slide to the left, set it to "Single User Mode" and slide to the right, for "Multiple User Mode". So it is a perfectly acceptable question, but I just don't know why people are so closed for their minds that they have to close the question
