comment How widely used is the “two-space-sentence-ending” convention?
That's funny. When I was taught this in school (in the US), I remember being told it was a French convention.

comment Is there a word for this emotion? Resentment over someone's good fortune without wanting it - Not quite jealousy/envy
Additionally, Dictionary.com specifically offers "to envy or resent the pleasure or good fortune of (someone)". Sounds rather spot on.

comment “Her whole family IS/ARE biologists”?
@F.E. It wasn't a complaint. I thought you made a good point, but you need to make your point in the right place, which is Meta.

comment “Her whole family IS/ARE biologists”?
@F.E. That wasn't an appropriate edit. If you disagree with closure, you should make your argument on Meta. It will get better publicity there and is more likely to get the question re-opened.

comment Isn't the word “shotgun” a self-redundancy?
@Konrad Yes, we are all friends here. I want to make one further point. I agree it is hardly feasible to check for every word's possible second meaning. If the OP doesn't check for their one word's second meaning, then EL&U is tasked with checking for every word's second meaning, which happens more often than you might think. I hope this helps explain some of the community's reaction to your question.
