First, I genuinely agree with you that UsingEnglish has been helping people who have genuine problems with dictionary definitions. Second, be frank and honest, have I not beein repeatly declaring that every time I asked about the meaning of a word, I had had checked out at least three dictionaries before posting? (Three of my dictionaries are very easy to use because they show the definitions of a word automatically when mouse points to it) My sense of honor never allows me to leech other people to do what I should do. Usually after having checked three dictionaries and failed to catch the nuance, I would post a thread to get a hint.5jj wrote:

NewHopeR, you have been asked repeatedly to use one or more dictionaries to help you find the answers to your questions. We are happy to help people who have genuine problems with dictionary definitions, but we are not here merely to look up words for other people. Please do not keep asking us to do what you can do for yourself.
But I've not done good enough and that is why the misunderstanding has now occurred. I think that from the next time on I will post the definitions that I look up in a word-meaning-thread and explain why I fail to catch the nuance and need other people to enlighten me.
Thank you for understanding.
