comment What is it called when two people refuse to talk to each other?
IMHO the silent treatment is a form of psychopathic/narcissistic abuse, there are always an abuser and a victim, I don't understand how this can be mutual.

comment An idiomatic alternative to “familiar with the matter”
Interesting if cognizant fits well, yet I'm not sure if it's idiomatic enough.

comment How to pronounce 'foci' and 'loci'?
Dear MetaEd! Surely I thoroughly searched for an answer, I even can use google, and have visited many sites (like forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=390779&langid=18 or answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100513163225AAvNv0A), but unfortunately I could not get an idea in which countries it's pronounced -kaɪ and in which -saɪ, until Kris pointed to Wiktionary. Also I'm sure that this harmless question looks rather silly, but seeing how it collects downvotes I only have to conclude that this community is one of the most hostile ones among SE sites.
