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.

comment Use of the word "theory" in "string theory", "M-theory", etc
Thanks for the comments, everyone. I lack the privileges to see deleted answers, so I can only guess at what was discussed. It seems this question is technical to the point that the community would not consider an answer up to standards unless it included a hard reference. I'm glad to be part of a site with such high standards. On the other hand, I'm wondering if such a reference even exists! If finding a source poses too great a difficulty, perhaps the question's wording should be relaxed to allow "softer" answers? I'll wait a while in any case. @Trag @Shree @aaron
