I work at Hex-Rays, developing IDA disassembler and Hex-Rays decompiler. I like reverse engineering, embedded devices and other low-level stuff.

comment How do ことになる and ようになる differ? (When ことになる cannot = “It has been decided that”)
Well, @Brandon's answer could be using blockquote and it would look fine. The issue in this one is that it mixes example text with explanation in the quote block.

@Tim: I'm not talking about the 「」but about the blockquote (yellow background box). However, you can also mark Japanese text with backticks. (The link also mentions using blockquote, but for fragments of Japanese text).

Quote formatting for text which is not actually a quote is confusing.

comment What are the reasons for the huge amount of loanwords in Japanese?
I don't think Japanese has really "far more" loanwords than other languages, it's just more noticeable because of katakana.

comment Understanding Japanese verbs
@Tek: courses/textbooks may not teach you some specific words, but they will teach you how to use the words (e.g. how to ask questions).
