comment How is “Can anyone tell me how can I solve this” wrong?
@GEdgar I found the edit in question and the changes are very... cosmetic. Some of them are simply incorrect. The entire edit never should have been made in the first place. I know that's tangential to whether or not the grammar is correct or not, but still... it was a BS edit.

The real question is... who approved such a minor edit?

comment If the #2 pencil is the most popular, why is it still #2?
I think this is a silly question because of how easy it would be identified by prior research, but I fail to see why it isn't related to the usage of the English language: there's just multiple meanings to the phrase "number 2" - personally, I think "number 2" is entirely appropriate for those pencils, but for a very different meaning of the phrase. Stupid things.

comment Is there a secular, non vulgar alternative to “for heaven's sake”?
While I don't have evidence to back this up, I've always suspected this came from "For Christ's sake".

That reminds of me one of Lincoln's most famous quotes, "Don't believe everything you read on the internet."

comment Should I follow English conventions, or write what sounds better?
We do say things like "The data tells us" but I've never seen something like "The datas tell us" which you would expect given the first scenario.

comment What is the correct form of address for a police officer?
@tchrist I completely agree. Apparently, they don't office, they troop! I would just be glad that someone is making an honest attempt at civility, if it were me.

comment What is the correct form of address for a police officer?
I've had "state troopers" be very offended by calling them "officer" instead of "trooper".
