I'm going off on a tangent, but also word meanings can be lost in translation as well (as it's been touched on in the previous posts), this is just as important as grammar.

For example, in this post, I grind my teeth whenever somebody says "Dear". To me, it's like somebody saying "Hi love/babe/gorgeous/sweetheart/etc.", something I wouldn't expect to find in this forum!

I can't be the only one, can I?
