comment “umgekehrt als bei” oder “umgekehrt wie bei”?
@guidot: ein Ngram kann niemals Fragen beantworten, allenfalls Antworten illustrieren und genau zu diesem Zweck hatte ich das damals vor drei Jahren (!!!) auch hier veröffentlicht.

comment Was ist die Bedeutung für dickfällig?
Apparently dickfällig is a not so uncommen misspelling (maybe from the analogy to schwerfällig), hence your question is of general interest and it should stay but it does need the misspelling then (I therefore rolled the dit back).

To editors: this question is being edited several times after we performed a rollback to the initial state on behalf of the OP's request. We should not continue to do this. Thank you.

comment Which sentence is correct?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a proof-reading request with no indication of prior research.

comment Which sentence is correct?
@Cool - well, we do as you wish. It is no issue to roll back your post to the previous state and close it again for being off topic.

comment How do you say “mild vomiting due to a Stomach Bug”?
To make a "best" answer possible we may want to move the "Stomach Bug" part to a separate question.

Actually this Google search is interesting (i.stack.imgur.com/oQ7cA.png) - even the answer was quoted there.... ;)

comment Usage of zumute
@CarstenSchultz - you are wrong there. It is a general Stack Exchange policy on comments that existed much longer than this site (read all about comments here) - it is expected from all users to clean-up their obsolete comments by themselves. If they don't do that it is janitorial work for the moderators who may not at all be prepared to read all lengthy comment threads to not miss a possibly valuable comment. Note that we do have a menu to purge all comments on a post in one click to make this easy.

comment Usage of zumute
Please do not answer a question in comments. Comments are meant to ask for clarification or to point to issues but they should not be abused to write a half-answer. Having answers in comments makes any later clean-up extremely cumbersome if impossible. Thank you.

comment What does usw. mean?
@Emanuel some people may get the impression you do (This post here caught an offensive flag)... The other question you mentioned was closed as was yours for the same reasons. As I understood the whole discussion we had we decided to not allow posts without context or with no research effort mainly to avoid being flooded with tons of such posts. We then should also show people how to put more love into a question.

comment What does usw. mean?
High reputation users should not counteract the guides we all made up for ourselves on how to ask a good on topic question. This question does not show context and the research effort you claim to have made is not really convincing. We should also not make fun of people that really may have had a hard time finding a much less common abbreviation in their dictionaries.

comment German word for “awesome” sounding like “ga-yeah”?
@mbm29414: which will lead to replacing "geil" by "cool" (or something else I bet) in the next generation kids - at least in the school my kids go to "geil" already became old-fashioned parent's speek :)

comment Regionale Verbreitung von »Ich bin Hauptplatz«
Umfragen und "List Questions" sind für das Stack Exchange Format grundsätzlich nicht geeignet, da man kaum eine "richtige" Antwort erhalten kann, und da es ja auch nicht um die Lösung eines Problems geht. Das zeigen auch die Antworten und Komentare die wir hier haben. Ich habe eine CW-Antwort generiert, in die man seinen Ort eintragen kann, wenn man möchte.

comment Woher kommt “kein Schwein”?
Der erste Absatz ist Beleg für die Aussage des zweiten Absatzes, denn sonst hätte ich mir den ersten Absatz sparen können.
