comment Religious connotation of “Verzeihung”
IMHO, not at all. This would also work with headmaster for instance.

comment Religious connotation of “Verzeihung”
This was most probably meant as a trivialising acceptance of your apology. The recipient wanted to clarify, that he/she is no person commanding respect like a priest (Pfarrer) and though there's no need to apologize for minor matters. This doesn't mean you should not apologize in future, but was more an ennoblement of your relationship.

comment Sprachwandel oder weit verbreiteter Misnomer von “komplex”?
Spannend ist eine kürzeste Antonym-Verbindung bei wiktionary: komplex != simpel, simpel != kompliziert. Wenn ich das nicht missinterpretiere lässt genau dieses Verhältnis auf eine eventuelle synonyme Verwendung schließen!? Gekommen bin ich darauf weil ich komplex als Antonym für trivial bestätigt haben wollte (und bekam).

comment Are “fuchzehn” and “fuchzig” dialectal expressions?
@Carlster What would happen, if everyone would add his own dialect words? This would end in a total mess, unusable.

IMHO fuchzehn and fuchzig should not be in this dictionary.

comment Gibt es eine gängige Übersetzung von »premature optimisation«?
In Anlehnung an Vorauseilender Gehorsam würde mir Vorauseilende Optimierung gefallen. Das impliziert auch die oftmalige Sinnlosigkeit. Um danach zu suchen würde ich aber die englische Variante bevorzugen..

comment Difference between Leitung and Geschäftsführung
You stated, that "Leitung" and "Geschäftsführung" are no synonyms. That's because the lack of information about the "Leitung". But it still could be a "Geschäftsleitung", which would be a Synonym in this, specific, case. A "Leitung" is still no "team-leading" but a "leading" role.

comment Difference between Leitung and Geschäftsführung
What I meant is, that "Leitung" doesn't imply the rank of the leader. So a "Leiter" can be a teamlead as well as a leader of a division or multinational corporation, it's just not specified.
