Answer: When is it appropriate to use "different from" vs. "different than"?

orion117 asks us: When is it appropriate to use “different from” vs. “different than”? Or, as I like to put it: Is “different than” different from “different from”? (Meanwhile, “different to” is standing over in the corner there, all overlooked and forlorn. And rightly so, too, considering it’s a rarely-used variant which will only confuse things here.)
