comment Why did the translator replace an actual name with a placeholder?
This is it. With the added guess that this peculiar translator probably thought "my target audience wouldn't know who Joan Crawford is (or even "I don't know who she is") so let's just write the bowdlerized word for whore here". From this and OP's previous questions, it doesn't look as a sterling translation to me...

Yo diría que va más por el lado de instintivo, de fuerza de la naturaleza.

comment Translating a legit double negative
@Flimzy I don't even know how to do that. Anyway, if you think you know better, there's nothing we can do. Might makes right, so let's leave it.

@Flimzy It is not a duplicate. Pay attention! This is a more general question. The answers to the other question don't answer this one.

comment What is the implied noun in “empanada”?
@Tony: That's now. Now, for the pastry you don't use "x empanado" anymore, but "empanada de x"; so the expression "x empanado" was taken over by the breaded dishes.

It's "carne". Carne empanada -> empanada.

comment ¿Cómo se legalizan los superlativos irregulares?
@EmilioGort Los que importan son los del inciso a, los "de número". Y estos tienen que, por lo menos, residir en España, para poder participar de las sesiones. En el estatuto no dice nada sobre ciudadanía, aunque al ser un organismo del Estado español tal vez haya restricciones generales que correspondan (lo dudo).

comment Mejico or Mexico?
It just doesn't mean anything whether a proper name appears in the dictionary or not. It's just circumstantial. If you want to show the RAE stance on the word, it's explicitly written in the DPD: lema.rae.es/dpd/srv/search?id=yw4cM0fJdD6eNgXK1j

comment Mejico or Mexico?
"México" is not the only correct spelling according to the RAE. "Méjico" isn't in the dictionary because it doesn't contain proper names. The "México" entry is just a pointer to other lemmas which include the word in a set phrase.
