comment What does ピグ mean? (Not pig.)
Well, the post says what it is - or are you asking where it comes from, in which case see snailboat's link. At any rate, it seems they are well aware that it could be seen as "pig" in English ( vsmedia.info/2013/04/01/amebapig www)

comment Reading of 味 as a suffix in “X-flavour” / as a counter in “X flavours”
Okay, so ~あじ for specific flavours and ~み for more generic tastes like sweet, sour... but it's not 塩味{えんみ}? Or is it like the difference between "salty" and "salted"?

comment Japanese to English : need help with a sentence
Straight "what is the translation of <sentence>" questions are likely to be closed as "too localised". (Add more specifics, as snailboat said, to avoid this). Googling this sentence in quotes should turn up a couple of links where it has already been discussed, e.g. here.

comment Meaning of いくのは
If those links clear it up for you, I think it's probably best just to close this as a duplicate of one of those questions, rather than repeating what's been said elsewhere.
