comment Packing material vocabulary
A Colombian would translate packing peanuts as bolitas de icopor and Styrofoam as Icopor (Industria COlombiana de PORosos - ICOPOR). Other than that; same as Alex's answer.

comment What's the origin of the Panamanian word “biñuelo”? Is it merely a corruption of “buñuelo”?
@hippietrail I searched Google Panamá and I always got back recipes for fritters. I also found a Peruvian blog with pictures of Biñuelos Arequipeños con miel (looked yummy). Colombians say that someone is a buñuelo when that person is really bad at performing some task. Soy un buñuelo para el fútbol (I am a really lousy soccer player).

comment Words for “grave”: tumba vs. sepultura
@Laura: I think nicho is mostly used in Spain. RAE has the following definition for nicho: Concavidad formada para colocar algo; como las construcciones de los cementerios para colocar los cadáveres. If I am presented with the above definition from RAE, I would have said that that's the definition for fosa.

comment How important are accents in written Spanish?
Mexican is not a language nor a dialect. You probably meant Spanish.

comment How important are accents in written Spanish?
I disagree. I think they are thaaaaaaaaat important. Reading a piece of text with no proper accents is a pain. You have to read the lines 2, sometimes 3 times, to make sense of what the person is trying to communicate.

comment Are there any differences between “de nada” and “por nada”?
I've heard por nada mostly in Mexico but I think de nada should be preferred.
