comment Idiom for “just because you give something a different name, it doesn't change what it is”
I don't care for the examples given. You're making a blanket assumption that what follows is inherently insulting, racist, or disrespectful, and I don't buy it. As pointed out in the possible dupe the responsibility for the perceived issue isn't only on the speaker.

comment Is the second “are” required in “Here are the ideas I thought are worth spreading”?
Should be "I thought were worth spreading" (past tense), or "I think are worth spreading" (present), IMO.

"[...] semicolons are technological, not grammatical." Interesting; I hadn't thought about it like that.

I may put a bounty on that question, then; I was not satisfied with it when I read it a day or two ago. I'll go over it a bit more, though.

@Charles It's used outside of replay scenarios as well.

comment Using “And” at the beginning of a sentence
@Robusto Or ellipses, if that's how one rolled.
