comment Qualitative intensifiers e.g. とても, とっても, 超, etc. How are they different?
Although でっかい煩い (うるさい) is ungrammatical, as sawa says in a comment below, I've developed a tolerance for it after hearing the line from Alice many times.. Here's a list of "でっかい" quotes from Aria in various situations (most of them ungrammatical).

comment What does 男前 mean when used to describe a woman?
I agree that it refers to her behavior in this context. Unless her looks is described as 男前 elsewhere in the book, it's more natural to interpret it in a similar sense with the preceding adjective: 生意気な, which is about impertinent behavior. Also, the polls in the article linked by Dave talks almost only about what behaviors make a woman 男前, which shows how common it is to apply 男前 to behaviors.

comment What is a ダンディー?
Shouldn't the close reason be "general reference"? It's not unimaginable for someone in the future to wonder about the meaning of ダンディ in Japanese, and actually there are already some questions about the word on chiebukuro, etc.

comment Are there words so bad that they aren't allowed on television?
I think I understand what @repecmps is trying to get at: "Isn't this question about words that are inherently bad, that anyone will instinctively avoid using them at a public occassion, like on TV?" In that case, it seems correct, since Dave has reframed his question to a similar angle. However, I don't think Rolf's (now deleted) question was treated unjustly, because, from what I remember, it wasn't well scoped and answerable like Dave's questions are.

comment General applicability of the ~ませ conjugation
There are 1M+ results for 召しませ, a phrase I've heard from time to time but neglected to look up its exact meaning. Is this another exception?
