: I wanted to know if I can still ask questions, or did I overstep my rights?
: I know that not always my qestions are pure linguistic, and I noticed that some of my questions were erased.
: Anyway i'll do my best to asks only relevant questions to this forum,
: and thank you so much for all your kind help so far.
Yes, by all means. Discussion about the origin, and sometimes the meaning, of commonly used phrases often provides material that can be a reference for others. This stuff I usually archive.
Many phrases that crop up in everyday speech may be perplexing to people whose first language isn't English and we are glad to answer those here. I don't tend to archive them though as, once answered, they aren't likely to be asked again by anyone else.
