I sometimes enjoy embedding puns and subtle self-references into many of my answers and comments.

Remember, context is everything.


Never make the mistake of thinking that a tiny preposition has only one meaning.

comment I am healthy like a fish or as a fish?
That's usually the way such idioms as stated (stubborn as a mule, strong as an ox, hungry as a bear); however, healthy like a fish wouldn't be grammatically incorrect, and it would have pretty much the same meaning (assuming fish are regarded to be healthy in general).

comment "The mean recognition rate of the first 6 attitudes is above 50%”,correctly?
@Ping - Had you incorporated these comments into your original question, it might not have been closed so quickly. There's no need to skimp on the details of a question. In fact, I'd encourage the opposite; sometimes these small details improve a question, because they make it easier to pinpoint the cause of confusion.

@snailboat - Not a challenge, but a genuine question and request for your opinion: See this answer, which got flagged. Leave it alone, delete it, or convert it to a comment? I think it answers the question, but some bolstering might improve it.
