comment What's the difference between legal (illegal) and lawful (unlawful)?
Please write up this answer as a self-contained whole: treat it as an article you're writing. Assume that the reader is coming to it fresh, and wishes to read through from beginning to end. Visible EDIT comments are jarring and make your thoughts disjointed. (If we want edit history, it's available to us through the "edited X hours ago" link. It doesn't need to be shoved in our faces.)

revised Is there an antonym of “ruthless”?

comment Single word for a self-confessed traveler who constantly talks about his travels regardless of the audience interest, circumstance or relevence?

comment What is the best format to use when writing out dates?
@LindaLawson-Bruton. In the absence of further clarification, I'm assuming that this question is referring to dates in running text, not in filenames. In database fields, it should be stored as a date object, however the database chooses to store that internally, and represented however seems appropriate to the viewer.

comment Is there a word that means (ac)cumulation over time?
Could you give us an example sentence with a blank for the word? In some contexts, deposit might work; in others it wouldn't, so context would be helpful.
