comment How do emojis sort in a dictionary?
@Jim : Emojis are represented as numbers between 8 and 32 bits long en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode and vary by font choice en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emoji . Oxford's opened a gigantic can of worms here, and I'd like to know how they plan to deal with it.

comment “Craven, crass and mafioso tactics”--failure of parallelism?
I've gone with craven, crass and crunchy. Mafioso just doesn't go with the flow here. Maybe cruel would be better than crunchy; probably more on target, but I like crunchy.
