comment Is there a name for an answer to a question that does nothing but rephrase the question in an answer form?
You are right, fact that turns my answer into basically, crap.

comment Does this sound vulgar or have sexual connotations?
I don't see any relation between loving someone and recommending someone because he is good at something, nor I like the name of the site at all. ICQ had a similar word play but it made much more sense.

comment Changing Noun to Adjective using “of”
@FumbleFingers Giving it some more thought, I think that conflict of interest could be transformed into interest conflict being interest a noun functioning as an adjective, as opposed to an interesting conflict, where interest is first transformed into an adjective, and then used as an adjective. In that case you will be trasforming a noun into an adjective only by position shifting, a mechanism we are all familiar with. This transformation, however, will yield some difference, since conflict of interest is such an used idiom, that it has its own acronym.

comment Changing Noun to Adjective using “of”
@FumbleFingers Hi, I'm sorry for the delay, I've been a couple of days out. Regarding your question, I think a conflict of interest can also be considered another clear-cut example. I think the general rule is that you just can't guarantee that the result of any transformation will yield the exact same meaning, because you simply don't know if amongst all the possible resulting transformations you won't be hitting another idiom. Now, if you want to leave idioms aside, well, maybe the logic governing the transformation can be then considered safe and fail-proof.
