comment What's the difference between 彼【かれ】 and あちら?
@Daniel, I assume your Android dictionary is using WWWJDIC as a source, and as I'm looking at it now, it does give あれ as the first reading for 彼, which is kind of messed up. You'll also note, though, that it's marked as an "archaic" reading. 彼 is almost always read かれ these days. I think part of the lesson here is that WWWJDIC is a community driven dictionary, and is usually right enough, but does have it's quirks, so use with care.

The SAD strikes again.

@Chocolate, please consider leaving your answer up. Part of the requirement that makes a site go from Beta mode to fully fledged is to have multiple quality answers to every question. The goal isn't to just have one perfect answer for everything, the goal is to have multiple approaches.

@Kaji, yeah, we're in total agreement there. I'm now noticing that there does seem to be a difference in how the community is voting for the answers, and I think I might let that be the deciding factor. I'm personally of the opinion that both answers are straight up equal, but if for whatever reason one gets more votes, it seems to be a decent tie-breaker.

comment What is シ●ブ, and why is it censored?
@Chocolate, Meth is a specific drug, and stimulant (覚醒剤) is a broad category. So, I guess I'm just wondering, if I were writing a story in which a drug addict went to a drug dealer and asked for シャブ, would the reader assume specifically one drug (meth), or not have any specific image in mind?

@Kaji, Might go to Senshin just for the rep boost, but I wouldn't really want to reward people being faster. I think that getting points for being faster encourages people to place low quality answers in the hopes of getting in ahead of others.

@Chocolate, I thought シャブ was specifically slang for crystal meth.

All these comments are helpful, but really they should be answers. Also, still missing is the rationale behind censoring the word.

@Kaji, Now that it's pointed out, I feel a bit embarrassed for not having realized that it involves なる. Now the problem is, both answers are exactly right and similar... not sure which to mark as correct. I'd like to give both a green check.

comment センスで嗅覚も研ぎ澄ます - “sense of sense of smell?” Why use センス?
@EiríkrÚtlendi, it isn't moderators who vote questions down, it's anyone who uses the site. And, unfortunately, this does mean that any individual might choose to downvote for some weird reason all of their own. Worse, they may not explain it. Unfortunately, we've suffered the presence of someone(?) who has been frequently downvoting with no explanations and making newer users like yourself feel inexplicably criticized. However, please don't take it too personal. The problem is with the downvoter, not you.
