comment What's the difference between「~と言いました」and「~と言っていました」?
The title is clear but the text is not a complete sentence, just two seemingly unrelated fragments. Can you clarify your question? (There are probably several other related question that can help)

A better title for your question might be "The difference between てある、ている、〜た [etc]"

comment Dropping ーさん when referring to someone humbly with 謙譲語
Thanks. but it seems a bit odd to refer to a co-worker in conversation with our supervisor without the "san" - not impossible at least a bit rude/rough? (I've added my thoughts to the question itself.)

Yes - if you take a look at my new "enhanced" question and then expand I might be able to accept ;-)

@TokyoNagoya: I am not sure if you mean the site is unavailable or that the Japanese is too difficult for most JLSE correspondents (neither of which I can judge) but the information is also in the original question and has now been added.

comment Using も in place of を
@Tor: It is worth getting on top of this because there are plenty more "compound particles" that can be used to give a series or list of items and act in the same fashion (でも、し、といい etc)

comment greeting the wife of a colleague with 「お世話になっています」?
@TokyoNagoya: The square brackets around [私は] were intended to indicate this part was unspoken. Correct me if I am wrong but I think it is grammatically correct (if it is not then this common misunderstanding among us learners).

comment How to say “no thank you, I don't want / need it”?
I am not sure how put it into words or I would (especially as the NHK 発音アクセント辞典 only gives one way of saying it (ケッコウ{HHLL}, 〜な)). However, also, when using the expression I am careful to give the correct NVC.
