comment How could one prevent drunk users from using a mobile application?
I wouldn't prevent users from using the phone. Quite the opposite, you should make it easier to use if you're drunk and want to make an emergency call or perhaps phone a taxi. Other contacts could be hidden perhaps by using groups. Perhaps you could just make an "I'm going to get shitfaced" button that hides all contacts, but the ones I mentioned earlier + the emergency number, for say the coming 8 hours? Then make these fairly large buttons with large text?

comment What could be a single term (for use in a website) to refer to a community that encompasses students groups, academic institutes & recruiters?
Perhaps you should rephrase your question and try english.stackexchange.com?

comment Ideas for improving my Sudoku game
I looked through your questions over att stackoverflow. I only found one question about sudoku. It differs greatly from this one. It is a question that is specific. Don't you see the difference?

comment What is the impact of spelling mistakes for users?
Don't you know any students that study english? They won't translate for free but perhaps that would be a cheaper alternative.

comment What do you think of the new Yahoo Mail UI? Is it a good or bad UI?
I wouldn't call keyboard shortcuts retro, I think of them as absolutely essential if you want to use a site effectively.

comment What are some alternatives to the phrase “Are you sure you want to XYZ” in confirmation dialogs?
+1 I too believe it's clearer when the buttons aren't labeled just ok/cancel, but Post/Cancel or Delete/Cancel

comment Multiple ways to show approval for an item
Ah, I see your point. However I feel that it's better that the GUI is consistent. I feel it would add complexity for both the asker and the programmer if it were to work different ways depending on if you asked the question or somebody else.
