comment What does “Clearasil-scented grammatical sloth” in casual American speech mean?
I would add that clearasil-scented contains a note of condescension or dismissiveness towards the young people in question simply (and the article suggests, unfairly) due to the fact that they are young.

comment Words to address young (male) people with?
A stud is a horse that is kept for breeding or a man who is proficient sexually, one who gets the ladies. Calling a stranger stud would put a weird sexual spin on things if you ask me. I would suggest stud muffin instead. (Just kidding with that last bit.)

@brasshat, yes, the expression to use is "up-arrow, up-arrow, up-arrow, ..." and then start typing your message :)

comment Is there a different understanding of “rubber” in British and American English?
I agree with this answer. American English has become the lingua franca of English whether those of us who are not American like it or not. Personally, as a speaker of Australian English, I grew up saying rubber, but now I just say eraser. But I say it in a ridiculous American accent as that amuses me.

comment Send money / Request money
Can you give some context please. When you say requesting, do you mean they are obliged to send you money (for payment of services for example), or that you are merely asking if they will send money (for a donation for example).
