comment Equivalent of “Excuse me” for “you're not in my way”? Pedestrian bump avoidance
neat! Canadians are famous for this (What does a Canadian say when you step on their foot? Sorry!) and it's true, so it's nice to hear that it is true of others too.

comment A way of describing the lesbian parent that is not pregnant?
Not every concept needs a word. And even if we do need a word, we don't currently have one, and this question asked for what to call her. The only word we have is mother at the moment.

comment What does the word robo means?
You would have done much better to search for "robo-reviewer" and "roboreviewer" on the site where you saw the post. The term is in common use on meta (spelled both ways) and it is one of many meta-specific slang/jargon phrases. Knowing what "gimme teh codez" means in a dictionary won't help you know what it means on meta.
