comment Use of 厨 on the Internet
@Dave: I just provided what I could provide hoping that it would be useful to someone. What I wrote here is likely to be a mixture of what I read on the internet and what I guessed, and it is unclear to me which part is which. I thought that my evidence-less answer might be useful because I imagined that some people would have no clue where to start looking at. And you keep claiming that my post is a noise. How nice. Do not worry, I will not try to post any noise to your questions.

Be careful with Google counts! See: Google result counts are a meaningless metric and the answers to a post on meta.english.stackexchange.com.

comment The use of -さん when answering about oneself
This is actually a border-line dupe: When should one add -san at the end of a name?

comment What techniques/resources do you use to learn Japanese?
The question seems too broad to be answerable in a useful way. In general, there are many, many techniques which help you learn a language…. Voted to close as subjective and argumentative.

comment Significance of the kanji 茶 in the set phrase 滅茶滅茶{めちゃめちゃ} / 目茶目茶{めちゃめちゃ}
Thanks. I think that your translation is fine. Just to add, 無作 (むさ) here is a Buddhist word and not in common use nowadays.

revised How do I use うく as casual slang (as in ういた)?
I realized that “out of place” was a much better translation

comment Significance of the kanji 茶 in the set phrase 滅茶滅茶{めちゃめちゃ} / 目茶目茶{めちゃめちゃ}
Just to clarify: According to the page, it is sometimes incorrectly explained that the origin of the words 無茶 and 苦茶 relates to tea.

comment If I wanted to sound more like a Samurai, what words and phrases should I learn?
I was thinking of 拙者は and ござる, too. But you are right, these are the stereotypical Samurai speech rather than how the real Samurai spoke.

comment Are there differences in nuance and usage of [内]{ない}[緒]{しょ}, [秘]{ひ}[密]{みつ}, [隠]{かく}し[事]{ごと} and [秘]{ひ}め[事]{ごと}?
私の内緒 does not sound right to me. For example, “I have secret” is 私には秘密 [隠し事, 秘め事] がある, but not 私には内緒がある. (I know I am failing to explain it in an understandable way. Someone else should be able to explain it much more clearly!)

comment Are there differences in nuance and usage of [内]{ない}[緒]{しょ}, [秘]{ひ}[密]{みつ}, [隠]{かく}し[事]{ごと} and [秘]{ひ}め[事]{ごと}?
@Lukman: No. I know that I failed to explain the difference clearly, but the combination 内緒が looks always wrong, no matter it is the first person, the second person or the third person.

comment How to differentiate ~られる conjugation between passive form and potential form?
I did not know the terminology “verb of class 1/2/3,” but judging from several webpages, I think that you are talking about verbs of class 2.
