Well, this has happened to me a lot of times owing to my shallow knowledge of English. When I post questions, I get some great answers however, some of them contain a lot of jargon/terms/expression which I don't understand(even after a googling a lot of them) and obviously I would not able to make separate questions for all of them and neither can I keep badgering the person for clarification because of the fear of annoying the person with my curiosity or worse, getting the answer deleted. It is pretty unsettling when you don't completely understand the answer/comments or worse, the puns in speaker's comments. What do we do in this case?
One case would be "Ayn Rand certainly did, you emoticon notwithstanding." I didn't understand the words in italic. I know the meaning of each word but couldn't make out as a whole.
