RE: Russian language: no more bullshit
Your post read like if you are not a native speaker don't bother learning it. Which sounds a bit weird but that was how I read it.

But think about it from my perspective. I'm trying to learn a language that is pretty complicated. And here is a native speaker saying he wouldn't bother with the grammar unless he was a native speaker which you are claiming that you are. So I took it as why are you bothering with it.

Now if you are saying that you are not fully versed on the nuances of the English language then I might be able to understand where you are coming from. But your post didn't have much encouragement. As for understanding the challenges of the language, I face them everyday because not a day goes by when I am not working with the language. It doesn't help me much to hear from a native speaker about what I know is a challenging language. Being helpful would be dropping some super secret language shortcuts. Or a list of critical words to know vs not so critical ones.
