comment Possessive apostrophes
@EdwinAshworth to clarify further: at the point of my comment, no answer was available, only the comment "Possessive its does not have an apostrophe". Thank you and goodbye.

comment Possessive apostrophes
In case you are unaware of how Stack Exchange works @EdwinAshworth, linking to external answers is discouraged because they might not work in the future. The reason I linked to it, as I stated, was "if anyone wants to put together a solid answer". There was no answer at the point of the comment, and the only comment available (the first one) was completely devoid of further information on why.

comment “Training on” or “Training about”?
Ask Google. It seems to be used, I found results like "Scottish Training on Drugs and Alcohol (STRADA)", "Training on 'Leadership communication and political participation' for NC" and so on.

comment “Prefer to” vs “prefer than”
Well, let's add some contrast, you couldn't just switch "to" with "than", but there are constructions where you could use the word, that Shaona may have heard, misheard or misremembered. For example, you could say "I prefer bathing, rather than just lying on the beach." If you would say simply "I prefer bathing", it's implicit what you are preferring it to, but in my example "rather" is also used to explicitly state what it's being preferred over.

comment What does “vanilla” mean in the context of gaming?
@Sparr: Incorrect. Battlegrounds was not an expansion pack. "World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade (aka TBC), the first expansion for World of Warcraft" wowwiki.com/World_of_Warcraft:_The_Burning_Crusade
