comment Are there any words with a hard “C” preceeding an 'I' in words starting with “ci”?
The closest I can think of is the name Ciaran as an Anglicisation of the name Ciarán but it's a proper noun, and it's more common to either leave it in the original Ciarán or to Anglicise further to Kiaran.

comment Can “in alpha” be used as an antonym to “in beta,” or it’s a totally different animal?
"Gold" was once common for the final or released version, probably from the the use of gold master CDs though perhaps also referencing the gold record presses from the music industry.

comment Which is correct, Credential or Credentials?
@Kris source for what? If you hold that there is some sort of magical distinction between some text passed between computers and some text written on paper, I would say that the burden of proof; or at least the burden of making some sort of supporting argument, is with you.

comment Which is correct, Credential or Credentials?
@Kris, a username-password pair is as much a credential (more commonly, credentials) as the letter Samuel Johnson asked for when requesting "A short letter for me to show… as a kind of Credential".

comment Word that means “Sneak and Steal”?
@Christopher not being perfect synonyms, to sneak something means to steal it in a sneaky way, but to steal it does not necessarily mean sneakily, so they could use sneak, but not steal.

comment Capital letters
I'd say ELL too, though I'd also say the question should indicate whether they care about use in titles, in sentences, or both.
