comment Word for something sad and funny at the same time
We're really trying to avoid using this site for "single word requests." If you have a particularly interesting problem to solve, all we ask is that you include a bit of background and context for asking the question, instead of just repeating the title in the question again. See: meta.english.stackexchange.com/questions/1654/… or meta.english.stackexchange.com/questions/2160/…

comment Looking for a single word for 'almost real in appearance'

comment Another word or term to describe 'Not correctly and properly maintain for quite a long time'
We try to avoid using this site for word requests where a thesaurus or other tool would suffice. If you have a particularly interesting problem to solve, all we ask is that you put a bit of effort and research into the question and let us know what problem you are actually trying to solve.

comment Single word for “crucial, but often overlooked”
Why don't we just get away from these "single word requests?" At least the problem becomes somewhat interesting if you put a bit effort and research into the question. These one-sentence "I need a word meaning..." crossword solvers are rarely a good use of this site. meta.english.stackexchange.com/questions/2160/…

comment What makes a word offensive?
This is more of a sociological issue than one of the English language. There are gestures and people and philosophies that people find just as offensive. Asking why certain "words" are also offensive doesn't change the scope and make it a question about English. The answers below would seem to bear that out (mostly historical/cultural references). You have a few answers I hope you find helpful, but I am going to close this as off topic.
