comment Why is using 'this' mid-sentence incorrect?
The second fragment needs a semicolon, IMO.

comment Using Dashes with a Possessive
None of those options is remotely idiomatic English as I know it. AFAICS, if you're going to use the possessive, you have to forgo the parenthetic comment (even if the parenthetic remark is marked by dashes instead of brackets/parentheses). "Our neighbour Penny's hair is blonde" works for me, but isn't wholly comfortable.

revised Why are we in love “with” someone?
Using SMS abbreviations is, I thought, not preferred here.

comment I'd like to know which one is 'the main verb' in the given sentence
Stripped of adverbial clauses, the sentence is "Mr Earnshaw came downstairs". The main verb is "came", therefore.

@JanusBahsJacquet: Sorry for not being enough of a regular here to have picked up the jocular intent behind your tongue-in-cheek suggestion.

comment A Better Phrase for “On Hold” in the context of Stack Exchange
@JanusBahsJacquet: Really? 'Needs to be improved' perhaps, but not something as ungrammatical as 'needs improved'.

comment “A cup of hot coffee” or “A hot cup of coffee”
A cup of iced coffee is probably more attractive than an iced cup of coffee. But I mostly agree with what you're saying.

comment Opposite of “mutually exclusive”
Is 'corequisite' a word that's already known? It would have the right meaning, I believe. 'Mutually exclusive' means 'cannot be used together'; I believe 'corequisite' would mean 'both must be used together'. A Google search on 'define:corequisite' says it exists and seems to refer to 'Corequisites are courses that must be taken at the same time.' So, maybe it isn't usually used as an antonym of mutually exclusive, but it is not a wholly unreasonable term to use.
