comment Idiom meaning diverting somebody's attention from a topic which you don't want to talk on
Deflecting attention is not necessarily deceptive, and certainly being deceptive does not at all imply deflecting attention.

comment Suggested alternatives for that horrible new noun 'nice-to-have'?
This answer seems more focused on "need-to-have" than "nice-to-have", but "want" is definitely a good suggestion for the latter.

comment Suggested alternatives for that horrible new noun 'nice-to-have'?
"Luxury" is a great suggestion, it better conveys that it's a desirable ("nice") option.

comment What is a word for a person who uses resources to the maximum?
I'm not sure this totally fits. I would describe using a bare nub of a pencil over grabbing another more usable one to be inefficient. You'd have to qualify it further such as being efficient with respect to expenditure or consumption.

@Ooker I think frugal has a more intense connotation, which can be either positive or negative depending on whether you view it as a desirable trait or as "too much".

comment What's the difference between legal (illegal) and lawful (unlawful)?
The use of "EDIT" is widely discouraged on all SE sites I know of, even if people still do it. It's more of a hold-over from forums. In any case: There is also a similar difference between criminal (illegal under criminal law) and wrongful (harming another party in civil law).

comment aberration vs aberrance vs aberrancy
I think OP is considering them all as nouns with the first definition, with the latter two taking similar forms to the noun "occurence" and "vacancy".

comment What do you call a person who is always noisy on the Internet?
@Blubberguy22 I disagree with your reading, but even if so -- why mention it? There is a virtually limitless number of words that are not correct here, and the OP does not mention "troll".
