comment A does the same B as does C
@DavidSchwartz Yeah, that's why I made my comment a comment and not an answer. I agree with you that I don't think either is wrong per se, but I figured even though my ear liked it one way, somebody else's would like it the other way. Cheers.

comment A does the same B as does C
I don't think there is a special rule (I may be wrong). To my ear, "as does C" just sounds better than "as C does". "As C does" sounds like "where's the library at?". I don't think either is wrong.

comment What's the appropriate response to the question “How are you doing”?
"How you doin'?" is the favorite pick up line of Joey from the US TV series Friends. Is that what you are asking about?

I actually quite like 'Leaders lead with solutions.' Doesn't seem clunky to me. +1

comment Can you use “Goldilocks” as an adjective?
@WS2 I've not heard yet (you could be the first!), but if someone were to describe their garden by saying "...and we had these Jack and the Beanstalk sized broccoli heads this year" I would understand them to mean the broccoli was large. I think we should start a trend of such once upon a time speech!

comment what do you call the feeling of pain addict have before using drug?
Or jonesing if you want to be less clinical. Although there is no real connotation of pain with jonesing- only need.

I would say used much more with reference to women. No male I know would admit to gettting a hairdo.

comment What is the use of By the time?
I'm sorry, this is an English language board about the English language. You'll need to make comments and ask questions in English for them to be answered. "Checked on this portal even i didn't get answer" is not an intelligible English sentence.

comment Is there an equivalent for French “CQFD”
QED is what one used to put at the bottom of a mathematical prooof. Quod erat demonstrandum. That which was to be proved. I don't know if QED is anglicized enough for you or still considered full on Latin. Edit: Other people answered while I was typing.

comment How to say: “this number has not been rounded”?
@TimLymington Never even heard pleonastic before. Nice word. But wouldn't you say "Either word is fine, but using both is pleonastic." It is already an adjective. "Pleonastically redundant" sounds (this is so much fun) pleonastic to my newly informed ear. LOL.
