@Soccem I don't quite get your first sentence (but agree with your second).

comment It might be defined different/differently?
@Robin You'll notice someone edited the OP to make it clearer. Maybe that helps.

comment It might be defined different/differently?
@Robin That's a good point, too. And I even whittled the sentence down to avoid as much jargon as possible.

comment It might be defined different/differently?
I suspected "differently", and that's what I always use. I re-read the last response to the linked question and you're right, it does explain it well. I guess it didn't sink in the first time. :(

comment How popular is ‘Contrafibularities’ as a day-to-day English word?
Are you aware that urbandictionary, like The Onion, is not exactly to be used as a reliable source for... well, anything?

comment “Effect” vs. “Affect”
So I think an easy to use rule is: If it is a think (noun) or means 'to create', then use "effect", else use "affect". Anyone comments from the experts out there?

comment “Effect” vs. “Affect”
"His plans had no effect on me." and "His plans affected me." seem like the same sentence, except for whether or not "me" was impacted. I still don't know what to do. Any more help?
