comment “And” vs “with” in description lists
Sorry, but single-word requests, phrasing, and re-phrasing questions are off-topic here. If you can edit this into a more substantial question, we'd consider reopening.

comment Poor man's copyright techniques
There are parts of the world where mailing yourself the manuscript will provide some protection, but the US isn't one of them. Registering the copyright will help if you end up in court.

comment How can I encourage more comments on my blog?
Close votes will expire on their own in time. @what I think that's pretty much the only way to answer this question.

comment The etiquette of updating News Posts - Help please!
@LaurenIpsum - Good find. That question's answers are focusing on the business reasons, if this focuses on the journalistic/ethical reasons, I think it's okay on its own.

comment Is the word “becoming” being used correctly in the following metaphor?
Can you define "correct"? What are you worried about, specifically?

comment Is the word “becoming” being used correctly in the following metaphor?
I think that this is off-topic as per this meta post but I'm not sure if it'd be okay on English. Leaving it for now until I find out.

comment How can I encourage more comments on my blog?
I think I agree with Monica that this is a marketing question, and therefore on-topic. But I'm willing to be persuaded otherwise.

comment Should quotation marks for titles of short works be included as part of link text?
I can't find anything about this in AP or APA, but if someone else can I'd be happy to edit those into this answer.

comment Should quotation marks for titles of short works be included as part of link text?
I agree with Lauren that the CSS element of this question is better asked elsewhere, but we can address the rest of the question.

comment Potentially risky subject in my script
This question is very close to being brainstorming to generate plot ideas, which is off-topic here. Incorporating your comments might help make this question useful to more people.

@What - Agreed, these are endnotes. Would you like to turn this into an answer?

As per the meta discussion mentioned above, I'm closing this question.

comment I can't figure out to come up with a good plot!
@Standback Agreed, this is close-worthy unless Cyperson edits this so it's more specific and distinct from the linked question.

comment May I use real weapon names in my book without copyright problems?
The question isn't whether the user can provide products and services but just to name things.

comment Story beats for woman masquerading as a man
Questions about storytelling tools are on topic here, but I'm torn. I've opened a discussion about this question on our meta site.

comment How to correctly translate past-tense from languages without Pluperfect?
Agreed, will send this to English.

comment Story beats for woman masquerading as a man
This is basically asking what to write, which is off-topic here. Can anyone think of a way to make this a more answerable question?

comment How can I turn my short story into a novel?
Welcome to Writers! This is an interesting question, thanks for asking it. I've removed your secondary question about POV, since that would be better asked as a separate question; please feel welcome to go ahead and ask it. (The text is in the change history.)

comment Less expensive way to find pictures for a visual dictionary
@what - My opinion is that this still isn't about writing. That the accepted answer basically says "take your own photographs" supports this; the question and the answer have nothing to do with writing.
