  • Is this reply correct ?

    Best answer: Some might say "am," but what she says is right. That's because what you said uses the imperative "be." You give her a command, which is something you're ordering to "do," e.g., "Do be happy." So it's right to say, "I do always." In fact, it... show more
    Best answer: Some might say "am," but what she says is right. That's because what you said uses the imperative "be." You give her a command, which is something you're ordering to "do," e.g., "Do be happy." So it's right to say, "I do always." In fact, it doesn't actually say the same thing as saying, "I am always." "I am always" simply suggests that happy is her general state, but "I do always" says that she actively makes herself happy always, which is what you told her to DO when you said, "Be happy."

    Have you noticed recently the comments supporting trump since the elections seem all to be the same, copy paste. Sometimes they don't fit the article or make little sense. Also mostly fake accounts, bots. I have recently noticed the same with Israeli articles like here on yahoo, similar strategy, and also get plenty of likes. The comments seem repetitive, with little or no sense. I am working on a project in Natural language processing in A.I, and I know that this is the case here. Any ideas?
