comment Is there a way to condense “put back” into one word?
Restoring and rollbacking my changes sounds strange to me.

Undo, reverse, and revert are the most common words that satisfy your requirements. They are very commonly used in technology interfaces, as Robusto has shown above, which are becoming more and more ubiquitous.

comment Best way to describe a decrease in time taken?
Both of your examples are comparisons. What is the second, or implicit, thing that you are comparing to?

comment Rephrase “to the best of my knowledge”
Whoever downvoted, I was in the middle of making some edits and my answer probably didn't make sense during that time. Please let me know if there's anything I can improve.

comment Rephrase “to the best of my knowledge”
To the best of my knowledge is actually not acceptable in certain areas of scientific papers, depending on where the paper is being submitted. It is especially uncommon in areas such as the abstract.

comment What is a word for “detaining without trial”?
How does this mean without trial? Most imprisonment is against the will of the imprisoned.

comment Is 'could be possible' the same as 'is possible'?
Impossibility is independent from any observer. It is absolute. If there are 9 dice, it is impossible that either of you will roll a 7. It is impossible for both of you, you are merely aware of the impossibility while someone who does not know there are 9 dice might think it is possible. Thinking something is possible and reality are completely different.

comment What is the least amount of punctuation required in the following:
Quotation marks are only needed if you are trying to convey that "they" said something verbatim (i.e. the words are a direct quote). In order to convey that he merely told them to stop whining, no quotes are necessary.

Maybe I'm wrong but my thought process says could be possible = possible(possible(x)) which is distinct from possible(x)
