comment What does the Twitter hashtag #壕 mean?
BTW, +1 for the last statement that is usually overlooked - many slang do not have a single, coherent definition. Misuse also plays a part in defining their final meaning.

comment What does the Twitter hashtag #壕 mean?
'in an online game, the paid players ...' Do you mean 'the paying players', or more authentic 'the P2W players'?

comment 您 vs 你 for parents?
@nickcoxdotme That's not accurate. 1) It's controversial among professional linguists, see this link. 2) There is a lot of usage and guidance on it, see this link.

comment What is the Chinese word for “home office”?
@StumpyJoePete That's right. SOHO carries its literal meaning in Chinese instead of referring to the district in NYC.

comment Modern vocab. “selfie”, “troll” and “spam”
From my experience, in mainland China, 小白 does not have the connotation of 'troll' at all. It means 'newbie' in a neutral tone or 'idiot' in a derogatory tone.

@Stan I doubt if there will ever be an authentic answer that cover all (major) regional variations. If you feel shy on the length of the answer, don't be.

comment 您 vs 你 for parents?
@Stan I was born and raised in Beijing. Almost all of my schoolmates who has been in Beijing for more than 2 generations have been using 您 to call their parents even at home, even now the children are in their 30's. It's just a data point for you, I have no clue if this is a Northern/Southern thing, a city/country thing or a Beijing specific thing.

comment 娘炮 - how do you pronounce this word/phrase?
@aelephant In that case, it may not be the right translation. Pussy can refer to cowardice; 娘炮 is more like feminine behaviors.

Why was the comment impolite? If it was, that's definitely not the intention.
