comment Is “Needless to say” ever worth saying?
@Pouya but I did just that. Talk about missing the point.

comment pronoun antecedent agreement
Craftsmen is plural, woodworkers is plural, so either way it's plural. Their hands. Who is he? Who is she? There is no he or she anywhere to be seen.

comment What is a word for the most basic form of a term?
Eleven very different answers posted in rapid succession are the best indicator that the question is insufficiently clear. It would be a start if you indicated the part of speech you are after, and the domain we're talking about (linguistics? philosophy? psychology?). And it would help if you could define what actually constitutes a simplification without losing meaning, and provide examples. After all, any dictionary entry is just that, and both hot and push do have an entry in most every dictionary.

comment A word or phrase for “going past a deadline.”
And there's nothing wrong with your very own two suggestions, either. This is really quite broad. There's more than one way to skin a cat.

comment A word or phrase for “going past a deadline.”
Delay, postpone, procrastinate, move, let them sit idle, put on hold, sit on their hands, chicken out... It depends entirely on what it is they are not supposed to be doing.

revised Which is better equivalent for “in stock”? “At hand”, “on hand”, or “in hand”?

comment What's it called when you buy something you don't really need?
This is way too broad, as demonstrated by the answers that are all over the map. You will need to narrow it down quite a bit. Why do you buy it? To what end and for what reason? Is it spontaneously or have you been planning it for years? Or has someone tricked you into it? Is it considered a good thing or a bad thing? Considered by yourself or others? Who are those others?

comment “I belong to a greater stage”
Back to the original question, it is simply not right that it's usually "belong to". You can belong on, belong after, belong between, belong before, belong in, and you can simply belong. The choice of the preposition is determined not by belong, but by what follows (or does not follow) it.

comment “I belong to a greater stage”
Sth., sb., so., adj. and dozens more are all common abbreviations to be found in most every dictionary going back centuries. It is little wonder that people actually use actual words they actually find in an actual dictionary.

comment In what context can the phrase “good for you” sound genuine and not sarcastic?
That is easy. We just need to find a single person who does not think that sounds sarcastic. I am one such person. QED.

comment “Hidden layer sizes” vs “Hidden layers sizes”
It's shoe stores, book shelves, student lists, lesson counts, beer bottles, layer sizes.

comment Is “Needless to say” ever worth saying?
@HotLicks so... you just publicly instructed the mods to delete as pointless noise any and every post of yours that includes words such as "of course", "clearly" or "obviously".
