With respect to StackOverflow

I believe there's great value to short, clear and "to the point" answers, telling the user exactly which direction he should be moving. It is okay to add an answer repeating what was already said if it has more concise and better wording. Like with Google Search, think of reducing the time it taskes to get the satisfied reader off the answer page as quickly as possible.

comment What words are commonly mispronounced by literate people who read them before they heard them?
@wil, it is the hebrew pronunciation that drifted away. It used to be pronounced with the 'th' sound at the end by the hebrew speakers, until quite recently when Hebrew lost this sound completely.

comment Different size or different sizes?
Also, 'with' sounds rather bad to me - 'with' just sounds like a symmetric relation (unlike of). Consider, for instance "three heights with different people"

In the world of many factors and continuities, one necessarily has to be better than the other :)

The fact some people prefer talking about diameters of round objects, is an unrelated sickness (see tauday.com)

comment Why do English writers avoid explicit numerals?
@bruno, In russian "ты мне должен 10 рублей" looks perfect. In Hebrew, "מהירות האור שווה ל-1 במערכת יחידות נכונה" looks perfect, despite that this afro-semitic language has genders for all numerals and reading it out loud would constitute an additional mental effort to recognize gender from context, as well as to switch bidi reading order twice. In Italian, from Oriana Fallaci's book la rabbia e orgoglio: "Erano le 9 e un quarto, ora" you see one number actually broken into a combination of digits and letters.

comment Can a sentence start with “Because”?
I didn't quite understand you guys. "Why have you stayed?" "because it was raining." Why would this be wrong?
