comment How are the different pronunciations of kanji used, such as onyomi and kunyomi?
This question appeared originally to be off-topic as written because it is about methods of learning Japanese rather than the language itself. I've taken a crack at editing into something more on-topic.

comment Who should pay, or not pay, who in this letter written in business Japanese?
I didn't downvote it, I simply made a guess as to why someone might do so.

comment Who should pay, or not pay, who in this letter written in business Japanese?
@DaveMG: This question is very tangled. And frankly, the fundamental question appears to be "please translate this for me". I can certainly understand some users downvoting it on that basis alone. You have at least 2 different questions in here, something that we do try to discourage.

comment What's the difference between Ichidan/Godan and Ru/U verbs classification?
True... but at least 'ru-verbs' actually end in 'ru' and 'u-verbs' actually end in 'u', whereas "う-verbs" don't end in う.

comment What's the difference between Ichidan/Godan and Ru/U verbs classification?
I don't think I've ever seen them referred to as う-verbs, always "u-verbs". The reason is somewhat obvious, only one type of u-verb ends in う, but they all end in "u" in the dictionary form. This looks like a case of overzealous anti-romaji-ness.

comment Is しゃぶしゃぶ typically written in hiragana rather than katakana?
Just to point out... しゃぶしゃぶ is not actually 擬音語・擬声語 here. It's derived from onomatopoeia, but does not actually work as a representation of the sound anymore. The general tendency of writing 擬音語 in katakana would not need to apply. (Note that wikipedia's definition of onomatopoeia is wide enough to be practically useless, but is largely irrelevant to Japanese)
