comment Is Weon used in Mexico and Chile and what does it mean?
Maybe he was trying to write "huey", but that's a very uncommon way to spell "wey". I've seen it some times spelled as "güey" or "guey" (this last one would actually be pronounced without the U, but some keyboards don't allow ü sign so it's common to see in the internet spelled like this)

comment What does the word “pinche” mean?
You can of coarse think it's a compliment, specially coming from the Taco makers, but the sentence as is does not describe the Taco as good or bad. It's like saying "What a fucking Taco!", but you can't say it's fucking good or fucking bad. You'd need to complement the sentence with something like: - ¡Qué pinches Tacos tan buenos/malos! (good/bad)

comment Difference Between “Computadora” and “Ordenador”
I believe it has nothing to do with 'putting in order', is rather that you 'give orders/commands' to the ordenador.

comment Difference Between “Computadora” and “Ordenador”
Totally agree. I know in Spain they use ordenador. In Mexico we say computadora more often, but we do understand ordenador, though it sounds a bit too proper.

comment What is the difference between “personas” and “gente”?
I'm sorry, the phrase mala gente does exist, it's just is much less common to hear. There's even a song by colombian singer Juanes called Mala gente

comment What is the difference between “personas” and “gente”?
In México there is a common phrase to refer to someone as being buena gente, which means someone is good, nice, trustable: Conocí a Juan, parece que es buena gente. can be translated as I met Juan, he seems like a nice guy.. However, there is no such phrase as mala gente, it is only used in the positive way.

comment What is the difference between “personas” and “gente”?
Note that gente does not have a plural form, even though some people use it. It is wrong and may make you sound illiterate.

comment What is the difference between “tuyo” and “suyo”?
The correct translations would be: - Mi vehículo es mejor que el tuyo/suyo. (non-formal/formal) - Tu gato es más gordo que el suyo. - Tu foto es más fea que la suya.

comment Is it an insult to call someone 'cabrón'?
+1 because the answer explains all meanings I have heard 'Cabrón' used for (I'm mexican too). But please! use proper punctuation marks and capitalization!

comment Past passive form of “Godzilla ha comido el hombre”
I agree #3 is gramatically correct, though is not very often to hear that tense on a conversation. It actually sounds a bit too proper for me, something you may found only in literature.
