I'm not really sure how that affects the question... the answer is still "address them the way they wish to be addressed". If you don't agree with their preference to use the gender pronouns they wish, I don't really think you'd be asking the question in the first place. — Catija ♦ 22 secs ago

@dwizum good point. I'll edit for that. For AnoE: do you not think I gave explicit suggestions of exactly what to do? I didn't suggest sending her to therapy, I merely suggested that if after trying they cannot jointly achieve a life in which she feels secure, family therapy can sometimes help a lot in very little time. With that said, I do believe this kind of interaction is not healthy, and that people are much happier when they resolve the underlying issues. — Craig.Feied 41 secs ago

This would be nice except I've just seen an answer that followed these rules and you objected to this answer - in a comment - because you felt that the answer was not relevant to the post.

@Daniel - I agree, and this happens on several SE sites I'm aware of because users - including me - frequently have a different idea of what comments are useful and valuable for than the site itself does. But the site's idea of what makes a valid comment is controlling, not your idea or my idea. So we just have to suck it up. — davidbak 45 secs ago

@WeAreAllInThisTogether That's a bit of a strawman - that wasn't even remotely implied in anything Jesse said.

In the past month or two I've been admonished by mods for writing answers that should have been comments, and comments that should have been answers. I'm a top 0.19% user on stackoverflow and I've written meta answers about when to comment vs answer - I know how this system works. Consistency is moderation leaves a lot to be desired. My comment would not have sufficiently answered the question; making it an answer would have been bad for the site.

Can you rephrase as: "What are likely reactions to expect if I do X in relation to person Y in situation Z?" That is how I read your question, and for me that is a sort of theory-of-mind, learning to empathize with someone who has anxiety situation. (Not 100% sure if that kind of question is acceptable here, but it seems it should be.) For the record, that sounds like a sweet gift, especially if she has a corny sense of humor. :) — cactus_pardner 1 min ago

I received a suggested edit which I believe makes my question a bit clearer in terms of what I'm hoping to find out. Is such a gift a possible trigger for someone with anxiety or possibly completely inappropriate? I was thinking because it was something she confided in me, and she loves her dog very much (he sometimes cheers her up), that this would be a sweet and personalised gift. However, I don't suffer from anxiety and thus was wanting some idea on the appropriateness in case I've missed something. — TMP4 1 min ago

Eating enough isn't some magical concept, you can back it up with numbers. You either eat the right amount or you don't. If you need to convince people, it's often best to show that you know what you are talking about and they don't, at least in such cases. Have you ever done a dietary anamnesis? Do you have anything to back up your claim that you are eating sufficient amounts and that what you are doing is in fact perfectly fine and healthy as you say? I'm not trying to give you medical advice, I'm just asking if you can back up your argument or if this needs to be done with softer approaches — Raditz_35 1 min ago

@Cashbee I don't see me mentioning counting calories, even though it would be interesting to know why you don't believe in basic physics. I was asking if you have anything to back it up. Your weight is fine I guess, but what is enough is something that is subjective.

The problem with the question isn't that it's off topic. It's that it's lacking in specificity. The "correct" answer to this question will vary depending on your connection with this professor. "Etiquette" is one thing but if you see this person daily and have a friendly relationship with them, the answer is different than if you have never interacted with them before. Without any sense of scope here, the answers can't really help your specific situation. Similarly, what your email is about - if it's a formal note or a simple query - will affect your usage. — Catija ♦ 1 min ago

These types of questions are generally off topic here, but I will throw in my two cents because it seems like you could genuinely use some help on this issue. Generally speaking, if someone reads your messages but does not reply they are either busy or uninterested. If you have sent several messages and this is consistent behavior, she is likely no longer interested in talking. If this is a singular occurrence, you could try to send another message to see what happens. I wouldn't push too far past that.

This site functions differently than other sites. We expect questions to conform to those standards.

@sphennings pardon my being pedantic, but there is a difference between calling out a behavior and a group. Likewise there is a difference between calling out a group you are a part of (including yourself in that group) and a group you are not a part of nor associate with. E.g.

@djsmiley2k – but what you write has flaws. Any investigation of a call (from phone to number read at gate or searched online) will reveal the identity of the criminal (think about previous calls made from their number, which are logged at the operator which disclosess criminal's contacts) so actually a detection call creates a way to apprehend the trespasser more quickly. Maybe you mean something else. Also I am not sure what did you mean by "get the number and use it to track them in a number of other ways".
