Question by : Is hostility the right word for this sentence?
I was posting something on a forum, and somebody told me to ‘beat it and go elsewhere.”
I replied with “Do I sense some hostility”?

Did I use the correct term in this case? What would you have personally said?

Best answer:

Answer by Colin Higashi
Yep, if that’s not hostility, I just lost years of memory and am really 89. I would probably have either left or replied that this is America, I can stay wherever I want on the internet, and if he didn’t like it, the door’s over there. So yeah. I would naturally reflect the hostility. Probably overreacting a bit.

Question by Lora: Does this behavior constitute a hostile work environment?
Is sexual behavior between a man and woman in an office (particularly a government office) constitute a hostile work environment. Last year I had to witness my boss running after another lady in the office and it looked like they were having an affair. It has since cooled off, but I think he would like to start it up again with her. Please let me know.

Best answer:

Answer by Freddy
Were they using language that you found offensive? Were they engaging in sexual acts in your view? Were they exposing themselves? Showing offensive pictures?

I am sure none of the above happened (or you would have told us), so you do not have a case for hostile work environment. While you might not like the relationship, witnessing someone else flirt with someone else is not hostile work environment.

Question by Nick: What is the reason for the correction in this sentence?
A grammar book says that please can come before or after an imperative sentence. So why can’t please be in this position.
Original sentence: Send your entry please before the end of this month.
(or is the above right?)
Correction: Please send your entry before the end of this month.

Best answer:

Answer by Lisa B
The please should come before or after the whole phrase, not in the middle of it. You could say, “Send your entry, and please do it before the end of the month.” This would be correct, because then you are applying the “please” only to the timing. But in the corrected example, the “please” applies to sending, AND to doing it timely.

Question by Culture Warrior: I sense some hostility between pilots and flight sim enthusiasts. Is this an accurate perception?
Would you care to fill me in on the dynamics of this relationship and reason for the hostility?

Best answer:

Answer by Nowell
Its simple.
Flight simmers think they know it all, when they’ve never been off the ground.

They’re annoying.
Expecially when they get on flight blogs and stuff online.

It’s not complicated.

Question by Sater 34: What type of literary criticism is this?
I found a literary criticism about a Flannery O’Connor story, “Everything that Rises Must Converge.” It’s an analysis of the title, so what school of literary criticism would this belong to?
It also includes analysis of allusions in the story and a quotation from O’Connor herself.

Best answer:

Answer by Nelly
It couls be New Criticism. New Criticism is the school that generally looks at works of poetry or prose as self-contained entities; that is, they don’t really look at history, context, authorship etc. If the commentary on the title looks at its meaning by itself, or looks at its relevance to the story without considering those other things I just mentioned, that is possible.

Here’s the Wikipedia page for New Criticism:

Hope that helps.
