Ah, yes, now... well, I'll still leave it here because I don't want to anger the dwarf in me. :D

comment “Two pairs of trousers” vs. “two trousers”
Since I cannot answer as a native speaker, I comment thus: I think it's "acceptable", but people may find it odd and think you're not a native speaker. Which may or may not bother you. But I don't think it will have actually negative consequences. Most people are tolerant enough to, well, tolerate it. :D

comment “Two pairs of trousers” vs. “two trousers”
Hmm, I think there's a difference here between "Two pair" as a standalone clipped response, and the full(er) expression "Two pairs of trousers". "Two pair of trousers" does sound odd, doesn't it? But I'm not a native speaker, only a furriner ;-) with a good feel for languages.

comment How accepted is ‘f***ing’ in informal conversation?
Wow, didn't know gender increased... and you're wrong, your personal bias is showing, strongly. Google "fry on swearing" about swearing and level of education.

comment How accepted is ‘f***ing’ in informal conversation?
I quote @rheto: deleterious effects of second-hand smoke on non-smokers I took it to be a reference to health issues. Which is a valid reason for restricting smoking rights.

Wow, I've a lot of weird shit about cussing, but to compare it to smoking... smoking can and will kill you (and others). Cussing kills?
