comment Neutral vs. Exhaustive が
As a side note, there are some "common answers" to this question, like "it depends whether the predicate is permanent or not" or "it depends if the information is new or not", but none of these are alone an answer.

comment Neutral vs. Exhaustive が
Here is the most succinct correct explanation I know. It's 39 pages and requires some linguistics background, but it's really, really good: lel.ed.ac.uk/~heycock/papers/topic-draft.pdf. Completely nails it. I don't know how to compress it into an answer.

comment The usage of ~かね
Sorry, I didn't mean to be confrontational with that comment. I could provide an example (there are thousands of hits in BCCWJ, for one) but I doubt me doing so would really help improve someone else's question. l'électeur's sentence works perfectly as an example anyways.

comment How to say “my experience at place X”?
@miikaelf l'électeur is a native Japanese speaker, I don't think he has a source prepared.

comment Adverbs that can modify other adverbs / adverbials?
Regarding your parenthetical remark... why do you choose to interpret "adverb" to mean 副詞 instead of 連用修飾語? The word "adverb" in English is often used to mean any word that modifies a predicate, just like 連用修飾語.

comment こんにちは and こんばんは only once a day per person?
@saidy Absolutely not a native Japanese speaker. In fact, seems like pretty much a beginner to me.

comment あなたはすき vs あなたをすき
@user4092 I think an answer where you give examples of each would be awesome.
