My opinion: law and regulatory should be made synonyms. What's the difference? But international-politics is a very different matter because now we're having to deal with treaties.

Someone is frustrated and lashing out. Obviously they're doing so inappropriately, but what purpose would reporting them serve? If you had some kind of ongoing working relationship with the person, their behavior would be unacceptable, obviously, but in this case the thing to do is to fix the typo and count yourself lucky you have better things to get worked ...

Found it! linked in this comment under Can you swim in space? It is the deleted currently-deleted question Just how “stranded in the middle of the room” did Dan Barry actually get? I'd edited the video (found in a comment back into the question (to try to stave off some of the drive-by down-voting), and it is indeed of higher quality (480p vs 240p for the ...

There is a Gardening StackExchange, and it has a tag called indoors with over 600 questions. Also has questions about grow lamps and lighting. Just make sure you grow arugula, also known as rocket.
