I asked legitimate questions about the grammar of this "language" and 
no one was able to answer them. I was specific about pronoun and 
conjugation use. I speak Mexican Spanish. I can tell the difference 
between it and Argentine Spanish and between it and Spanish Spanish 
and between those and Colombian Spanish.

I did the best I could given my understanding of the definition of 
"language" we use.
