comment What word best means “disdain for the uncouth”?
Why do you think that bigotry, uncouth, and disdain are not inherently pejorative?

How about snob, snobbish, or snobbery?

comment the correct translation of “attendu que”
I think it's more in the vein of "considering that" rather than "given that"

comment Is “will be going to” correct?
@ruakh- you and Hellion are probably right in your assessment of the desired usage but there's nothing in the question that makes that specific. "I will be going to the store in ten minutes" is a type of future usage in my book.

Yes. books.google.com/ngrams/… And if you like that just try to get your head around: will be going to have done

comment Word that can be either a notice/disclosure or an acknowledgement/confirmation
I think they might be collectively referred to as "liability-related messages" where messages doesn't imply a direction.

comment Word that can be either a notice/disclosure or an acknowledgement/confirmation
No, 1 is information that you are giving to the user. (You are telling them that their clicking the button implies consent) 2 is information the user is giving to you- They are telling you whether they accept by either checking the box or not)

comment Word that can be either a notice/disclosure or an acknowledgement/confirmation
Fundamentally the examples you have provided are not the same. The first, third, fourth and fifth are notices or notifications, but the second is an acknowledgement. I suppose they are all elements of the site's approach to liability mitigation.

comment Comparison between action of two nouns
And the is doesn't have to go at the end either. Although perhaps archaic or overly formal it could also be: "... than is the WWE" On a different note I think "The cricket" sounds strange to me alongside the WWE. If WWE refers to wrestling, then I'd assume cricket refers to the game, and in that case I think you don't want The- it's just Cricket or "The game of Cricket"

I agree with you @JanusBahsJacquet. That's how I read it as well.

comment What is the rhetorical device in “can of whupass”
I think OP was not expecting this particular answer, but you are most certainly correct for the first example. I'm not sure euphemism fits for some of the other examples though. +1 anyway.

comment A creative and catchy term for an app meant for farmers?
Growgle. But seriously I think this is off topic. We don't even know what kind of app this is: a game, a productivity app, an auction site?

comment how to write something of something and something
This feels very wrong to me, but you argue it like it should be common knowledge so now you've got me wondering whether it's just something I never learned properly. But in my mind it's: "Mary and John each have," "They each have," "Each member has," "Our employees each have," "Each employee has," "Each one has," "Each of them has"

We've always just called it a "straw paper"

comment What would you call a person who doubts his wife's character?
So are you looking for a word or trying to learn the difference between the two words you've listed? These are entirely separate things.

comment Is “fresher” really a “proper” English word?
This looks like it might be a BrE thing. As far as I know AmE students still use Freshman.

comment “Enjoy!” Enjoy what?
Because it's usually abundantly clear what is to be enjoyed.
