Hello,

And I’ve felt a mite defensive about it, as if writing in the company of darkness were somehow sleazy, questionable at best, particularly for someone identified as a nature writer.

Sleazy:

disgustingly low, cheap, or vulgar; disreputable:

ques•tion•a•ble /ˈkwɛstʃənəbəl/ adj.

What is the difference between “sleazy” and “questionable”? Is “sleazy” stronger than “questionable”?
