comment What is a word for someone who wants to preserve others' cultures?
Culturalist came to mind, but MSWord spellcheck didn't like it, so I thought maybe it was a word that I made up on my own.

comment What does “Per [person's name]” mean?
I've always read it as "on behalf of." "According to," works most of the time, but "as laid down by," seems to translate better as "on behalf of."

comment What is the plural of “BlackBerry” (as in the handheld device)
-1 The reason people post questions here is that they are trying to understand the proper grammar. Simply "getting away with" a grammatically vague or incorrect usage is the antithesis of this site. Additionally, there's no room for mudslinging in answers, in my opinion. Leave that out, or in the comments.

comment “People like you” versus “people like yourself”?
Personally, I'd use "you" when discussing my perspective of the person, and "yourself" when discussing the person's perspective of his or her self. i.e., "I am comfortable around people like you." vs "You are comfortable around people like yourself."

comment What makes “like” and “so” popular?
I learned this in a linguistics class, but as "hedge" instead of "filler."

comment Are phrases with implicit meanings considered incorrect/wrong?
@MrHen I think my question applies again, there - because some might interpret it as "cutting out." My question was raised after I saw a comment "It'd be nice if the internet wasn't cutting in and out," so "cutting out."

@Louis Rhys that would be "humor," I believe.
