'Stop exploiting women and get a fucking job.'
- But isn't that precisely what they've already got?
The Chinese government's reaction to the delay could be construed as rather hypocritical, in view of its present action in claiming territorial rights over almost the whole of the South China Sea - in flagrant disregard of international law.
The British government is, in my opinion, quite right to pause and consider the full ramifications of the Hinkley Point project, including the reliance on Chinese investment on such a massive scale. Britain must not make itself a hostage to fortune.
"By blocking the only remaining avenue for content creators to earn a living from their extremely hard work, you are helping put them out of business"
I'm more than happy to put sites that depend solely on advertising derived from third-party ad-feed companies out of business. These, more than any other cause, are the monstrosities that have ruined the web experience for so many people and given any form of advertising a bad name.
"I was thinking it's a crow about to damage my crops!"
Just turn the logic round, and here's the obvious use for a bird-drone - a scarecrow.
' Imagine a future where people fondly reminisce about the school-days and the fun they had in the classroom'
There's a wonderful short story written by Isaac Asimov in 1951 called 'The Fun They Had', set in the far future when all education is home-based and completely computerised. It's just as relevant today as it was then.
'"Yes, cheating bots are annoying. And yes, they can be seen as a problem."
Can you write a worse, more confusing, AND grammatically incorrect summary?'
You are wrong. The sentence structure may be muddled, but the grammar is quite correct.
'Citigroup *is*, not *are*.'
Both are correct. It's a collective noun that can refer to a single entity or a group of individuals - cf. 'government' and 'team'.
The AP Stylebook is an American product, written by and for American journalists. Saying that the Internet should henceforth be 'internet' is a parochial decision without global authority.
In Britain the standard is set by the Oxford University Press, which has a rather longer and more illustrious history than the AP Stylebook. When the OUP and the Oxford English Dictionary declare that the word should not be capitalised, I shall accept their authority. Until then, it's the Internet for me.
"Apps are countable, so it's number not amount."
You're quite right, but the incorrect use of 'amount' has gathered such momentum that it's now unstoppable.
"You really have to wonder about a culture that refers to little girls as "it."
Gender (grammatical) has nothing to do with gender (sex), as any fule kno.
'It's two words, mkay?'
Originally two words, but in about the thirteenth century usage split between 'a while' and 'awhile'. Both mean much the same thing, but note -
awhile (adverb) = for a short time (e.g. he rested awhile)
a while (noun) = for some time (e.g. once in a while)
"140 characters is more than enough to express a complete thought!"
Indeed. Parkinson's Law: 'rubbish expands to fill the available space'.
Natural laws have no pity.
