comment What's the meaning of “what gets put where”?
It's a short way of saying "what things are chosen, and where those chosen things are placed".

comment what to use with “your address”, at or on?
@FumbleFingers Great point. "While at my address I placed an order for some bombs to be delivered from my address to FumbleFingers' address, so he can drop bombs on Vikas' address."

"At". You would only use "on your address" when dropping bombs.

@AndrewLeach don't you mean "brevity needed: verb gone"?

comment “Page Not Found” - is it grammatically correct?
It is not intended to be a grammatically correct sentence. Compare it with any of various road signs such as "Lane ends merge right" or "no thru street".

comment “Soccer mom”: why soccer?
@Jakob I assume BlessedGeek did this because in most of the English-speaking world outside the United States the sport in question is called "football". Only in the US is it known as "soccer". (The rest of the world refers to what American's call "football" as... "American football"). Calling it "soccer football" seems to be the most space-efficient way to cover all the bases.

comment Is “metadata” considered plural?
In common parlance, consider metadata (and data) to be a mass noun, much like sand. There is sand on the beach, much like there is metadata in a DB.

comment “handy” instead of “mobile phone” (non-Germans)
Also important to note before using it in the US, "handy" is a slang term for something totally unrelated to mobile phones. I leave searching urbandictionary as an excercise for those not at work.

The raised hands of all the people in all the countries on the 7 continents are disagreeing with you.

comment Is there an adjective for someone who can withstand ridicule?
I would consider using your term, "thick-skinned". It fits well, and when used in context does not have the same connotation for me that you seem to apply to it.

comment Isn't the term “foreign national” redundant?
Did you read the link you supplied? It says "The term "foreign national" came into usage when the previously used term "foreigner" developed negative connotations. They are synonyms."

comment Is there a functional difference between “not believing” and “believing not”?
To emphasize the difference between the two, consider this: "I don't believe cold showers are good for you" versus "I believe cold showers are not good for you." One implies no benefit, while the other implies harm. Quite different.

comment “okay” vs “good” in questions starting with “Is it okay/good”
I think you need to provide some context here. If someone told me "I'm going to have to punish you for breaking the rules," I'd definitely say "okay" instead of "good".

comment Should “Ladies” be marked with an apostrophe in the noun phrase “Ladies beer”?
@oerkelens named Beer? As in "I present to you the Lord and Lady Beer, Duke and Duchess of Hops!"?
