comment Wording of the Preliminary Emancipation Proclamation
@Tonepoet, no, that would not be correct to assume; the 13th amendment to the Constitution, which abolished slavery, was not ratified until 1865.

@尤慕李 Yes, because there are two objects (one Inventor object and one Inventor's Society object).

comment class or classes?
Assuming that there is one Inventor class and one Inventor's Society class, I would rather change it to "In several places an Inventor class and an Inventor's Society class are used ..." (The way it's written invites you to start out thinking that there is a single class called "Inventor and Inventor's Society".)

comment Words to describe a strategic choice that is also a lie?
@Othya, I disagree with your premise that the respondent is lying. Rather, he is answering the question from a particular point of view that you did not want him to consider (that of political strategy instead of political philosophy). Simply put, they like him the least because they have sufficient disagreements with him philosophically AND he is the one most likely to displace the one they like the best. If you want to know who they disagree with the most regardless of strategic considerations, you should phrase the question appropriately.
