Just a suggestion... If next word change is response time, I suggest reverberation time.

Masterful:

 

Merriam Webster (online):

 
": able to take control of people or situations

 : very skillful

1
a:  inclined and usually competent to act as master 
b: suggestive of a domineering nature
2
Having or reflecting the power and skill of a master "
 
Oxford English Dictionary (UK - onine):
 
"1 Powerful and able to control others: He looked masculine and masterful .
[Another example sentence (OED)]She's very masterful, very domineering and would look great in leather.
. . .
informal: pushy
 
2 Performed or performing very skilfully: A masterful assessment of the difficulties."

Just as one begins to think that things may settle down . . . they find something else to send  us screaming to the dentist to fix ground-down teeth.

Ok I am furious right now. First, Upwork takes away my verified status as native English speaker (despite having a certificate to prove it), and now I'm "masterful"???

 

**edited for Community Guidelines**

 

I need my native English status back, along with the verification badge, because the type of work I do requires me to be a native speaker!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Can they just STOP going insane and making these ridiculous changes??

They are not only ridiculous; they are uneducated.

One would hope such a change would be reflected in the clients' screening options.

Geez, I can't decide what I find funnier - Natasa's masterful and open to offers, or everybody else's plain masterful in combination with self-assessed.

 

Who in their right mind came up with that replacement?

Not to mention these **edited for Community Guidelines** definitions

 

Fluent - I have complete command of this language with perfect grammar

Masterfull of it - Complete command of this language

Masterful = Fluent but with bad grammar.

 

Yup, the clowns are running the circus.

Hi Natasa

 

I went back and re-read my post thinking I had missed something, but I couldn't find anything that would exclude German, French or Serbian. Or Japanese, Norwegian or Swahili.

 

The sentiment remains the same in any language.
