“I'm sorry, but you are incorrect. The use of the word poring in this phrase, "When she isn't poring over the pile of rubble..." is quite correct. The word poring in effect means perusal or perusing. The word pouring refers to the activity of pouring a glass of milk or wine.

2. to gaze earnestly or steadily: to pore over a painting.
3. to meditate or ponder intently (usually followed by over, on, or upon ): He pored over the strange events of the preceding evening.”

“Incorrect. "Poring" is studying or reading something carefully, while "pouring" is the act of dispensing a liquid or granular substance from a container by physically lifting the container and tipping to one side until the substance flows from the container.”

“actually, no. pouring has to do with liquids, usually. to pore over something is to examine it closely. this is an error i see a lot, probably because the verb to pore isn't used much in conversation.”

“It would be poring over, not pouring. However, it is odd to use the word poring because it suggests an intent to memorize something. I am sure she is not trying to memorize the pieces in a pile of rubble.”

“Wrong! 'Pouring' is the act of transferring something (usually a liquid) from one vessel to another, as in, "Jennifer poured the juice from the pitcher to the glass." 'Poring' describes the act of lingering over, for instance, a collection of objects where one chooses to carefully look through each item, as in, "Jennifer pored over the trash pile while she carefully pulled out select pieces of charred wood."”

“Really? Stooping to the lower dregs of "explaining-away-dom".... blame the woman and then yet, characterize her as "emotional" and volatile. This just rings of desperation. The man feeling attacked, blames the other and when it is a woman, the "other" is cast with this gender stereotype.

This whole mess reminds me of a bunch of misbehaving frat boys who let things get out of control and now everyone is following "the code".....won't squeal on one another.”
