Re: What does "openly despicable" mean?
Hello kailinfeng, and welcome to Using English.
First, thank you for giving your thread a meaningful title. That helps a lot. So many people just say "A question" or something equally vague.
I completely agree with this. There is no point in our coming up with an example to show a phrase or word combination. It's much more useful to use this forum to ask about words, phrases, or expressions that you have seen but you don't know the meaning or you don't understand why it was used in that context.

I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
