comment Is it safe to replace '==' with 'is' to compare Boolean-values
@detly: Oh, you're right. I forgot that editing affects the 5 minute window. Changed to an upvote because of the edit and because I feel bad about how I handled it originally.

comment Is it safe to replace '==' with 'is' to compare Boolean-values
@Matthew @detly: Sorry, on reflection I should not have down-voted but merely left a comment. It seems most people imagine "True == True" as a stand-in for "<my expression> == True", and in this case we should just write "<my expression>" as suggested. But this misses the (in my opinion obvious) possibility that "True == True" is actually a stand-in for "<my first expression> == <my second expression>", which is a perfectly valid thing to write. I can't undo my downvote anymore. Nevertheless I still feel the original (unedited) answer was bad.

comment How are diminutives formed in recent English words?
@Bruno: Maybe a more reliable reference is needed. To tell the truth, many of the examples in the Wikipedia article seem not to qualify as diminutives. What is the root word that makes "talk" diminutive? But I figured my -y/-ie/-ey examples (not including "techie", etc) were roughly analogous to shortened forms like "Maggie" and thus qualified. If you can point me to a better reference, I would appreciate it.
