comment What is the たて in 取れる+たて?
About your question; sorry, I dare not hypothesize any more about that. The answer you graciously accepted also "works for me" and the "decision stands" analogy fits intuitively. The idea that "standing" is a cross-cultural metaphor for persisting in a state appear sound.

comment Is there a difference between んがため and ために?
Aha, I seem to remember one of the answers I pointed to in that discussion discusses む versus ぬ. I will go back to that and read it in detail.

comment What is the difference between ~すぎ and ~すぎる?
Ah, what must have happened is that I had a garbled edit of this, and ended up saving it accidentally. I'm sure I had it right at some point, but somehow the wrong thing ended up in the answer.

comment What is the difference between ~すぎ and ~すぎる?
Thanks a lot. I'm going back to look at the prior version. I remember I was struggling with the IME to get it to accept what I'm typing and produce the proper katakana: アルゴリスム体操. This makes for a nice example because it is highly google-able, and points to a fun little tidbit of popular culture. I'm going to put it back; hope ジョンさん does not mind.

comment Why does お[馬鹿]{ばか}さん contain honorific お?
@ジョン I will take another look. Being lazy, I will get someone Japanese to look over the sentence; I just played it loose and wrote Japanese the way I'm used to hearing it. The ことわず (saying) 灯台基暗し (toudai moto kurashi) deserves an explanation: it means that "it is dark at the base of the lighthouse", a metaphor for the situation of not being able to find what is misplaced right under your nose, so to speak (another metaphor from our own English: it is dark under the nose too, evidently).
