comment Description word between new and old?
@FumbleFingers but, but...there's another word I cannot think of, one that means "attracted and repelled at the same time"...like the reaction some people have to a car wreck, or the Kardashians. I may have to post...

comment Description word between new and old?
@FumbleFingers actually the missing tags should be "website-design" and "variable-naming" and subject to the same rule as a hypothetical "do-my-homework" tag.

comment How to describe the stage between “success” and “warning” in one word?
The context for this question is very specialized and not really suitable for this forum. Bootstrap button styles are there for a purpose, which is not to describe or map to the gradations of meaning between Success and Warning. But within this context, one normally uses Info as the neutral choice. It says "here's some info, neither good nor bad, just info you may need or be interested in"

comment The “Since… then” construction
@tchrist “Wouldn’t the sentence ‘I want to put a hyphen between the words Fish and And and And and Chips in my Fish-And-Chips sign’ have been clearer if quotation marks had been placed before Fish, and between Fish and and, and and and And, and And and and, and and and And, and And and and, and and and Chips, as well as after Chips?” - See more at: marginalrevolution.com/marginalrevolution/2013/04/…

Is it specifically for a technical environment, or does it also need to serve other contexts such as legal, medical, military, etc?
