H:SE should not be used for opinion based questions; questions and answers should be of interest to the wider population. It is also courteous to include wiki references to foreign, specialized and obscure words.

comment What was character of Chmielnitski's rise?
Who? It is very useful to link proper nouns to some source for those of us who aren't immediately familiar with the individual. H:SE should be a learning resource for all of us, not just for the person asking the question. It would also be useful to summarize the conflict a bit more clearly than you've done here.

comment US Congress in WW2 Compared with other legislative bodies
I think it is illogical to compare a liberal democracy like the USA with the fascist regimes of the axis powers - very different concepts of the role of government, let alone the role of government in wartime. Did you do any research prior to asking the question?

comment Could a nobleman's land be enclosed within another noble's land?
I believe that there are several channel islands that until very recently were the personal holdings of the Queen - they are quite proud of the fact that they are not part of England. They were forced to give up their feudal relationship to the Queen by European Union laws that prohibited vassalage. So yes, the crown could and did hold lands that were not enfeoffed.
