@RusA #9856709 Well, I was brought up with the idea that it's extremely rude to make fun of someone's accent or use of English, or even to mention such things out unless there's a good reason to. For my part, I mostly only say something if I honestly don't know what the person is trying to say, and so I'll ask them to say it again until I can figure it out. Even then, I feel a bit embarrassed to do that.

I tend to write in a rather formal style, and I even talk that way most of the time, just because I've spent more time in the library reading books than talking to real people. :) Some people find it annoying, some find it charming, but I don't really care so long as they follow what I'm saying. :)
