comment Is there any other word for “thumbs up thumbs down”?
Yes, "rate". I bet the domain name is taken, though.

comment Difference word descriptions
Yes, please do provide further explanation. We have to say something when we are going to sea, so why not "we are going to sea"? What alternatives are you suggesting? Is your beef with a particular word within the phrase? Please clarify.

comment Is this sentence structure correct? I catch myself using this structure a lot
What you have is unexceptionable. Don't overthink it.

comment Sentence in which “its” and “it's” can be interchanged without changing the meaning?
A solid answer and +1 for that. I would add another possibility of cutting corners: going further back. I.e. making use of the fact that the riddle fails to specify we have to use contemporary orthography. The original spelling of its is it's, and indeed just half a dozen decades ago or so that was very much the only spelling that was taught as correct. Its without an apostrophe is a very recent invention. (Look no further than Jane Austen to find things like her's and your's, too.)

comment Is “thank's” an alternative correct spelling?
Your colleague will not be able to come up with a single dictionary that has an entry for thank's, or a single book that uses it anywhere. He only just invented that reasoning fresh on the spot, possibly to cover up his egregious error, or just to mess with you.

comment Should I use an article? “Forum 2014”
It is a name. You can name your company Microsoft, and you can name it The Microsoft. It is completely up to you. There is no "better". That's like asking if you should name your child Peter or Paul. It is up to you.

comment What is the name for a question which is answered implicitly by any given response?
I doubt there's a specific name for this question category because there is no category. The only question that falls into it is "are you alive, conscious, and able to speak". There are of course any number of ways you can ask that in, including yours, but it's still just one question.

comment I hope you enjoyed/have enjoyed staying in Italy
This has been covered many times before. This question provides a general overview of how the different tenses in English correspond to one another. This one, and the related questions linked from there, addresses the choice between Present Perfect and Simple Past more directly. This one addresses an important difference between British and American English. We have dedicated tags, too. Have a look around.

comment picking a nicer word than article
Sorry, coining neologisms is off-topic here, as is ghostwriting in general, or naming other people's children.

comment Does one capitalize “Portuguese” when used in a hyphenated adjective?
... and even more to the point, it has nothing to do with whether it's a language in the first place. We don't stop capitalizing Thursday, September, Jupiter, Moscow, BMW or Obama, either.
