comment What is the difference between illegal and unlawful?
@LeeKowalkowski I wasn't necessarily referring to a verdict a court might return. I was commenting on the fact you said the term "unlawful killing" doesn't imply murder. Neither does "illegal killing". That's all.

comment What is the difference between illegal and unlawful?
@LeeKowalkowski But, if one said "illegal killing", that would also not imply murder, too, no? It could also mean manslaughter or causing death by dangerous driving, right?

comment Word for someone who overly nurtures their online image
Thanks, and that is certainly correct, but self-conscious is a little broad. Image-conscious might be OK, but I'm trying to find a word that doesn't just concatenate two words together. A more definitive single word, maybe a noun even.

comment Word for someone who overly nurtures their online image
I was looking for a more official word, that doesn't necessarily have to have an Internet context. A word that could be associated with someone who is equally careful about their persona/image in the real world, like distancing themselves from certain people because of their opinions just because other people may view it unfavourably, even though they themselves may not.

comment Is code written by a programmer “handcrafted”?
In the absence of any evidence, I disagree, but how about answering the OP's question rather than inferring pedanticity?

comment “flat” vs. “apartment”
Your descriptions of the different terminologies is mostly correct, but a maisonette has one more requirement (and I know this because I own one and the legal definition has been debated in legal tribunal hearings I've been involved with with my freeholder). A maisonette must have its own entrance to outside as opposed to a flat which has its own internal entrance, but shares a communal entrance to outside. In legislation, however, a maisonette is considered a flat for brevity.
