comment Does 'lure' have a negative connotation
I would quibble that the use of the word "absolutely" shouldn't be taken to indicate the strength or degree of negativity. Lure can have a sense that is anywhere from neutral to extremely negative.

comment Usage of the word “refuse”
You need to show why standard and readily available references don't answer your question.

comment I need an adjective to precede the word “method”
You are going to have to address the context concerns expressed in the comments or this question will be closed soon. The best approach might be to write your phrase using words you don't like and ask for smeone to propose something better. I suppose better, to you, would be as a one word adjective.

comment Are there rules about where a long title should be broken across lines?
You should show some research into the matter. Knowing what the purpose of a title is might lead you to your answer. That might be a direction you can go with your research.

comment Looking for a shorter term for “Preferred places to meet”
It seems like they don't even need to meet. They just need a preferred exchange location. (It even allows for someone else can handle the exchange.)

@Cerberus :( Now I have lost all confidence in the internet. There is nothing left.

comment is “modus operandi” singular or plural?
@BlessedGeek I'm not sure why you would give a reference that contradicts rather than supports your claim. Perhaps you are withholding evidence?

comment What is the correct hyphenation of “human skin tissue emulating gel”?
Style guides recommend limiting your use of hyphens to where they will improve understanding and remove ambiguity in meaning. (Otherwise, you should leave them out to avoid clutter.) At first glance it looks like only one interpretation would be clear, whereas the others would be absurd. I would go with no hyphens at all.

"Rare up and ready to go" is a phrase I have heard often enough growing up.

comment Someone or something small yet capable of having big influence?
@MatthewRead I think casting a long shadow nails the request for some"thing like "He may be small, but he casts a long shadow." You should make that an answer (with some supporting documentation).

Most people wouldn't think twice if you used "grippable".

comment What is the best word for “kitchen products” on an e-commerce website?
Culinary isn't also an adjective. It is only an adjective. It isn't a noun. So culinary, I think, ... no, I know, ... is not the answer to the question "what is the best word for all things used in a kitchen." "Culinary things" would be somewhat of an answer, but it is not the best WORD.

comment What is the best word for “kitchen products” on an e-commerce website?
@erich As a noun, that would be the chef or cook, and doesn't encompass "all things used in a kitchen". Your link doesn't include the adjective form, but the adjective means "or or related to a kitchen or cookery" (for which "culinary" also would work). I don't think either definition of culinary (the noun or the adjective) really works to describe "things used in a kitchen".

comment Difference between “formatting” and “styling” when used with documents
What do you know about the difference between the underlying verbs format and style, if there is any? Does the meaning of the corresponding nouns add anyting to your understanding?

comment What would the antonym of “tempt” be?
While the title and the question aren't artfully written, together they are a perfect example of why you should actually read the question to understand it.

comment Can you ask a question without a question mark?
From a prescriptivist POV, you're right. From a descriptivist POV, it answers the question "Can you ask..." It may depend on what your definition of "ask" is. And I challenge you to tell me who would disagree with "I'm making coffee..."

None of the above. If it fell off my plate then obviously there is not enough macaroni.
