comment What's a good term for source code that could theoretically still run, but is purposefully not?
@SantiBailors You assert condescension in my answer; there is none. The question said This code is still there, and could theoretically work, but it never will because it's inaccessible. The verb clutter means crowd (something) untidily; fill with clutter. I maintain that the word fits very, very well with the asked-for question.

My experience is that no one ever goes back and purposefully removes or reintegrates such code. YMMV.

comment What does “…you would rather we have the meeting…” mean?
I use that form all the time. Your example sounds more like "Let us know if you would especially like use to have a meeting..." which has a completely different connotation.

comment What do you call a person who prevents his/her own progress?
It's funny: people on this site quote low appearance in Google searches as a reason for down voting an answer... And yet when (IMO) the best answer is somewhat esoteric, but easily Googlable, they also dismiss it. 😂

comment Should I describe a book I've read in the past or present tense?
When in doubt, use the present tense. Do not mix tenses, unless you have a specific reason to.

comment What is a specific word for someone who can't feel any emotions and can't understand emotions or more specifically love?
Can you provide some context? How do you want to use the word? It could be as a medical diagnosis or describing a character in a work of fiction. Each of those would probably lead to different words.
