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.
