I was wondering if anyone can fill me in on why my answer from a question the other day on a polite replacement for badass (as a noun), seen here. I've done some searching on meta, but have come up without an answer.
I did find a post by user Mari-Lou A discussing the issue of down-voting and what is proper and not, but that did not answer my question exactly. The only legitimate reason I could think someone had with my answer was part of point 8. Certainly, my answer shows no research, but I am not sure how my answer could be wrong. The only research my answer needed was in the question itself: the asker provided the context he wanted the replacement for, and I provided words I have used as a replacement.
The other thought I had was that maybe someone was off-put by my comment on "queenly figure," which worries me a bit. I did not intend for that to be offensive. I'm worried someone may have read that as meaning that queens are not commanding, which could not be further from what I meant. I merely meant a queen, as far as where my brain goes with it, commands with a calmer hand and more level-headed presence than the typical, popularized king.
Ultimately, if there is something I did wrong, I would love to know so I can avoid it in the future! It is not my goal to be an annoying new user.
