to stick with it - to continue to work at it; to persevere.

Who deleted my letter to Saneta? I ask what is his opinion that we can replace stick with it WITH cope with it

Saneta couldn't answer, but Beeezeees did it instead of her.

Okay, who has a problem with my letter to Saneta? Who has right to delete an innocent polite letter?

Question remains question. Very strange things happen here.

I am very sorry, but I ‘ve just realized that two of my letters had been deleted.

1. The first I asked Sanata that what was her opinion about that stick with it can be replace cope with it.-it had been deleted.

After not Sanata answered but Beeezeees what it is there.

The second was: (I answered that ) "You are right, and I am very sorry but I have mistaken."- it had been deleted also.

As the phrase was there : "it's [b]hard, but you have to do it[/b]" I should control what means really this: "stick with it "
stick with it = even though it is difficult you have to do it.
cope with it = to deal successfully with sth difficult.

I think in this sense they are synonyms.
