comment What is the most universal way to say “keep the change”?
Sorry if I expressed myself wrongly. I do think that the answer is ok, and that the chosen options are really the most common ones. I think it would be a good idea to add that information so if someone in the future looks at it will have a reference on what to say in specific situations / regions.

comment What is the most universal way to say “keep the change”?
I like this answer for the whole set of options which can be used. However, I think it should be pointed out that some of those are hugely informal and could be even taken as offensive it not said right.

comment Spanish for “douche”?
@PeterTaylor That's correct, I only found (or knew) translations that were regional, but JoulSauron, I get your point, that's highly possible. I've seen good suggestions here though.

comment Is there a Spanish equivalent to “-ish”?
I'm sure I've heard them. Thanks, you confirmed to me that they are, at the very least, regionalisms.

comment Usar puntuación extra para expresar incredulidad
Personalmente pienso que, de los dos casos expuestos con signos mixtos, es más útil abrir un signo de exclamación y cerrar un signo de interrogación. La razón es que la entonación del español indica interrogación hacia el final de la frase.

comment Rules of style for Spanish
It took me a while to write this comment because I actually read it all before commenting. I think it does not fulfill my expectations, although it gets close. It does cover usage of proper grammatics (only for journalism) and it does cover common error and usage of symbols. However, that is a minor element in the rest of the context, and I think that is the main point I want to see extended and with full detail.

comment Usage of plural in collective objects?
+1 for citing sources. If there's no extra answer or comment that disproves this in some way soon, this is likely to become the actual accepted answer.

comment Why does “toalla” sound like “tualla”?
Isn't the case for Oaxaca quite special? I think the actual pronunciation for that one comes from Nahuatl.

comment What's the meaning of “Y yo voy y me lo creo”?
I actually heard it a lot too in Argentina. I guess it depends on the region, maybe?
