comment What were the most common reasons why draft-age men were not conscripted for the Union Army?
Personally I think its legit to use an answer to explain flaws in the question (assuming that thereby resolves the confusion that caused there to be a question). However, if you are going to criticize another post for not properly backing up its assertions, it would probably be good form to include some backing material yourself.

comment How much of colonialism profit was continued post-colonialism by neo-imperialism/neo-colonialism?
@maged - Perhaps, but that would generally go to private parties, not to the government (and likely would continue mostly unaffected after any but the most violent transitions out of the imperial system). Still it would be interesting to see numbers on that.

comment How true to the originals are Che Guevara's published diaries?
This problem is of course hardly unique to Che. For example, if you read Winston Churchill's autobiography of WWII, its tough to not come away with the impression that the man was practically the savior of Western Civilization as we know it. But of course, that's exactly the impression he was trying to provide when he wrote it. Its important to be a bit cynical when reading any historical account.

comment Machine gun specs in WW1
Personally, I'd argue that asking for such specs for a specific gun or two would be trivial. Asking about the typical specs for machine guns of the era requires compiling info from multiple sources, and is not trivial.

comment When and why did having long hair become associated with women, and short hair with men?
I don't believe this shows any more than that it happened to also be the fashion for men in Paul's time and culture. That doesn't mean it stayed that way continuously ever since (and the portraits we have of men in the 18th century would argue against that).

comment How did Americans' hatred of taxes shape the country up through the Gilded Age?
an issue, yes. But a primary issue? I don't see your link providing any support for that. It seems to be specifically saying it wasn't.
