comment Why some blade is called “beaver blade”
Beaver and Diamond are both brand names for surgical blades. It may be confusing because there are also such things as 'diamond blades' that are sawblades used for tile, stone, metal, etc. and the brand of Beaver sawblades like the one pictured above are a brand for wood-cutting saw blades. This Beaver brand is not the same as the surgical brand.

comment Why does binomial nomenclature seem to break case rules?
@Oldcat I thought the same thing initially, but upon further reflection realized that it doesn't really answer the question. We don't capitalize cat. It's not a proper noun. But Felis domesticus is capitalized. Why would the scientific designation suddenly make it a proper name? How does "My cat purred" differ from "My Felis domesticus purred"?

This is better, but you still haven't told us what you think it means and why you aren't sure if you are right.

Hi Fahad. Please edit your question to include where you heard this, what you think it means, and why you're not sure if you're right. That will give us the information we need to answer your question.

You've given good context and examples for your request. Have you checked a thesaurus?

comment Where can my IT-related articles be proofread and fact-checked?
I talked to the Writers mods, and they said they would welcome this question if it were recast as "how do I get this kind of review" (where answers might recommend specific services, or not). In other words, ask about the problem, not the specific approach you want to take. If you would like to edit your question here, I will migrate it to Writers for you when you are done.

This is a great question and also not really on-topic here. Let me check if Writers would welcome this question.
