comment How to say someone's home was something plural?
@haha Going to ask about this in ELL and see what they think. Should be interesting. Edwin will be happy. :) Just kidding.

@haha Thanks! Being a native speaker isn't a good way to gauge when you are dealing with an individual, especially one with ardent passion to know more about the language (it is very effective at approximating a randomly selected group's average skill level).

comment How to say someone's home was something plural?
@EdwinAshworth You make a good & subtle point. It was indeed hortative even though it was not consciously intended. Guess I'll put more thought into my usage of the word 'must' in the future. Slightly disagree that a site like this is judged so mainly by the level of the questions. Indeed, my suspicion is that people place more weight on the quality of the answers to the more (as you wrote) demanding questions? This is no valid excuse to intentionally litter up the place. :D Many thanks for taking up the time to politely converse about this with me. It appears to be in your nature.

@haha ok, I figured out what bugs me... You can say that places (plurar) are the right place (singular)?

@EdwinAshworth Was my comment hortative? Your concerns appear sincere to me, not that it matters (what my personal opinion is). However, considering the name and description of the latter aforementioned community, it appears you are also showing sincere disrespect to my question. So you feel it's clearly properly clustered with the questions of all those who's native language is not English? It is quite certain, people have been many a time, challenged to a duel for a less besmirching remark (half joking). ;) I'll make an effort to improve. Feel welcome to criticize my other questions.

@haha No, my question is about the structure. The meaning is accurate. This part is weird to me: "...those places were right place..."?

@EdwinAshworth Your intentions are obviously sound. It's just that imho, you presented them in a manner that is against the grain of the site simply because you care about the site and are being "slightly" overprotective of it as if it needs to be the crown's jewel. This is not the intention of the site's owners. Otherwise I'd have never been able to contribute in GDSE like I've done back in the day.

@EdwinAshworth You must realize the UX in all SE sites encourages fledgling users to participate (and make mistakes) so that they may learn more about the system and improve over time rather than be disallowed any form of participation until they master the system. If the latter was the desired case you'd have to pass a test to be an ELU user.

@haha What is the meaning of the last part: "those places were right place to do such thing." I don't get that part of the sentence?

@EdwinAshworth Your comment goes against the grain of SE imho. Reputed users (such as yourself) bear the right to vote and decide what belongs and does not belong here. At the same time almost any users vote if they think an answer is acceptable. What you are referring to is slightly more elitist and less inviting. There is room and time in SE to learn to properly use SE as well as the intended subject matter and a lot of questions and answer may not reflect a high level of mastery in neither.

Not exactly a duplicate. It is a q with a larger scope?

@Rathony So in essence it's definitely not wrong to omit the quotations in this case?
