@vartec you're right; mozo is used there instead (which means waiter in Latin America)

comment ¡Buenas! greeting in morning
It's clear that buenas is an informal greeting, but these days most of the world is informal. Maybe you wouldn't use it in court, with the military, or talking to a new corporate customer, but I'd say 95% of the time buenas is fine. (I do admit that living in Buenos Aires I might be biased. Perhaps this is not the case in more conservative countries/cities)

comment ¡Buenas! greeting in morning
I wouldn't say buenas could ever be considered disrespectful. Only the most formal situations would require buenos días, etc

comment Is there a standard, most common, or most neutral Spanish term for “chat room”?
Chatear is used extensively in Latin America, so "salón de chat" is not uncommon.

comment “ir a «infinitive»” vs. future tense
@hippietrail, I didn't say it's an Argentinean thing. I think the future tense is used more in Spain, but I'm not sure about all latin american countries.

comment How to choose between “carecer” and “faltar”?
@hippietrail yes, almost always. The only exception is when it's used in an answer, so the object is implicit: -¿Tienes dinero? -Carezco [de dinero]
