comment Is ending question sentences with の really feminine?
@DariusJahandarie I think that 今何をしてるの? is fine as an honest inquiry, but I think it is not distinctly male speech. My answer says that honest questions in male speech usually don't use の. I still think that's fine as a general guideline, but of course it's not very clear cut since male speakers often mix male speech with neutral speech. (I sort of assume that male speech doesn't contain neutral speech. Does that make any sense?)

comment に/で as time particles. What's the difference?
@Choko Unfortunately Tim's sentence was missing a word. I'm guessing "Tea is the only drink I have at breakfast"...

comment What is a word for “participation” that resembles “kameseru”?
I think my answer doesn't deserve a downvote, considering that my guess turned out to be correct.

comment What is a word for “participation” that resembles “kameseru”?
I wrote in my answer that 加盟する is definitely not participation in the sense used in the article. (I hope that's not what triggered the downvote.) I still think that someone who obviously has no clue about Japanese is much more likely to come up with a(n incorrect) kanji compound in dictionary form than with an unusual interpretation of 噛む in a rather advanced conjugation of the word. Anyway, what the writer really referred to is anyone's guess...
