NewtonMark Has anyone looked in to how “six months before you can get newstart” affects women escaping abusers who control their finances?

@jplonie @R_Chirgwin I think a nesting spot is being created, that’s what the females do. Then the males mate and die.

@R_Chirgwin I’ll put her in it if she’s not careful.

@R_Chirgwin Well she’s already been at my cheese and my muesli bars, it seems I have no control.

@Manic_Henry I know, I know. But the little fucker is still annoying me. I admire her sheer boldness though.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to scott_thewspot

@scott_thewspot @shiftkey @ben_hr … but consider the Japanese -san suffix compared with Mr.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to scott_thewspot

@scott_thewspot @shiftkey @ben_hr I know there’s a lot of variation, but I wouldn’t want to pretend to be definitive…

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to scott_thewspot

@scott_thewspot @shiftkey @ben_hr I think one cause of confusion is jumbling identification with naming with being courteous with titles.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to scott_thewspot

@scott_thewspot @shiftkey @ben_hr Do what Malaysia does for their immigration entry card. One field: Name. Why subdivide?

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to scott_thewspot

@scott_thewspot @shiftkey @ben_hr Yep, just have a write-in title field and make it optional. I suspect most people would leave it empty.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to scott_thewspot

@shiftkey @ben_hr @scott_thewspot Ah yes, I’ve linked to that a few times before. I should update it with examples.
