comment What's an evidential basis for discussing gender-neutrality of terms?
There's been a request to move this question to Meta. I support this idea, but I'm ambivalent enough to leave it to the community to decide. I think there is something to be said for having clearer standards or at least an agreement about how to make these kind of judgments.

comment Use of Comma with Clauses
@SrJoven Delay isn't necessarily transitive. If that were the case though, the sentence ought to be "Anna delayed, but it did not prevent the rise of the Borg."

comment What is the word for someone who doesn't appreciate their culture/heritage?
I think your terms describe the situation, but not the person, which is why others feel it does not answer the question.

comment Is the plural form of “Mercedes” a disused word?
tchrist's edit was perfectly valid attempt to clarify your question. You have every ability to rollback edits to your own posts. Additionally, tchrist answered this question years ago, and only edited his answer recently to give you a better answer since you put a bounty on this question because it needed "more attention". It's inappropriate to downvote posts as a vendetta, as well you should know by now.

comment Is the acronym “PET” only used in some countries?
In the US, we'd refer to it as "plastic" and use the PETE number if relevant. Most people probably recognize "PETE" from the mark on the item, but probably don't know what it stands for. If they recycle, they will probably know about the mark. Where I live, we can only recycle #2 plastic at the facility, in contrast to where I used to live, where they took all kinds of PETE plastic.

@Reg Well, the answer to the title question is in the title. The body of the question asks something else entirely.
