comment Is there a way to ask online booksellers to pull pirated editions of my books?
I agree with @LaurenIpsum - This site isn't tech support for Amazon, and it's not a complaints department. This user has posted three questions, all complaining about Amazon.

comment Standardizing capitalization within a bibliography or footnotes when your sources have used different standards
"I would not change capitalization to conform to some standard." This may or may not be up to the writer if a style sheet specifies otherwise.

What style guide are you using? That may have bearing on the answer.

comment How to cite multiple chapters from same book in Vancouver style?
I'm unfamiliar with Vancouver style; are the system's reference numbers really non-obvious enough that this is a concern?

comment Critique of this short text about inequality and contempt
James, thanks for working with us. Critiques need to ask specific questions; while you're halfway there, the questions you ask could be asked about nearly any piece of text. Do you have any specific concerns? For example, are there certain concepts you want to make certain are clear, or a certain tone you want to use? (Incidentally, although this is certainly long enough, feel free to five people more text than this if you prefer.)

comment Software for collaborative writing for a small team
@MonicaCellio - I think this isn't a dupe. The target question is more about communities, this one is about tools for small teams. I've edited the title to make this clearer.

comment Is there any standardized definition of a “Mary Sue”?
@LaurenIpsum - Agreed - the question is good. I just don't want to set a precedent of questions that define a term; that's more appropriate for the English site, or maybe the English Learners beta for other types of questions. In this case, the term is a Writing term, and the answers are definitely going to be on-topic.

comment What's a good writing software for Android phones/tablets?
The app is a bit flaky, though. And offline access never works for me.

comment Is there any standardized definition of a “Mary Sue”?
Normally, a question asking for a definition of a word would be closed, but a "Mary Sue" is a character type that's generally to be avoided. Am I right in thinking that the real question here is "What traits should be avoided when creating a character who's somewhat idealized?"

comment Is there any merit to the term “Mary Sue”?
This question is asking for opinions about a common term. While it might generate interesting discussion, it's not really a good fit for Q&A about Writers.
