comment what are kanji that can be flipped, but not rotated?
@kinyo: FYI, flipping vertically is not the same rotating 180°. Those two actions will only produce the same result if the character is symmetric about the vertical axis. Rotating the letter N by 180° will give the same letter, but flipping it vertically will give и .

comment に particle and passive form… multiple meanings?
@MobiusPizza: It means three things you liked about and three things you didn't like; specifically about being a male/female. Not just three arbitrary things. Ex: "As a young boy, I liked not having to wear dresses. I hated having to hold the door open for older women though."

comment Which is the proper way to say “I don't X”?
I disagree with your pitch on #3. タバコはすいません【HHHLLLLLL】 to emphasize "tobacco" (just as you did with the italics in the English) seems more correct. But maybe that's a regional thing.
