Shouldn't the second one end with a period?

comment Does “Friday midnight” refer to the beginning of the day on Friday or to the end?
@EpicGuy: I always took something containing the word "night" to be referring to the end of the day, not the start of the day... but then again, that's why I asked.

comment Man-hour vs. person-hour? Is the former now considered politically incorrect?
@NathanLong: Why not just get over it and say "manpower" though? Do you (or do other people) really think people are trying to be sexist when they say something like "manpower"?

comment Man-hour vs. person-hour? Is the former now considered politically incorrect?
So should we change "manpower" to "personpower"? Or perhaps to "womanpower" in contexts in which the people in question happen to be primarily female? Would that be better?

comment Hypernym of “move” and “copy”
I've used transfer for this too. I think it's a reasonable choice even though it's not perfect.
