comment Why isn't “Ich danke dir” “Ich danke dich?”
The etymology of “danken” may also shed some light on why the dative is used instead of the accusative.

I don't want to nag, but this question isn't really on-topic for this site. Since we have hardly any activity, I don't think anyone cares that much, but why would someone upvote this question?

comment What does “laufen” mean other than walking and running?
An addendum: If one wants to capture the abstract motion expressed by the verb “laufen” which underlies and explains all of its meanings, I'd say it would be to fluently follow a (maybe predetermined) path step-by-step as in “Die Zeit läuft.” – almost flowing. This is a very subjective impression, though. I wonder who agrees.

comment Was ist die Bedeutung des Wortes “Mail”?
@userunknown Tatsächlich. Aber ähnliche Erfahrungen hatte ich schon mal mit leo.org. Daher verwende ich dict.cc (mir gefällt auch das Interface besser).

comment What does “laufen” mean other than walking and running?
Sorry, it should be: “There are so many little men walking around.” – or maybe “small men”, my English isn't that good. It's also covered by this entry. I'll make that into an answer as well.

comment What does “laufen” mean other than walking and running?
There are other meanings as well: “Was läuft im Fersehen?” – “What's on TV?” I'm to tired to examine the usage of “laufen”. But one can always consult the dictionary. The way it's used in the sentence of your concern can be literally translated to “There are many such little men walking around.” without losing meaning. It actually suggests that they are indeed walking.

I corrected your German. Some sentences and constructions are still unusual in German, but I left them as they were because they are okay and hard to translate literally.

I hate “nichtsdestotrotz”. Why is everything getting worse?

comment Satzbeginn mit Kleinbuchstaben aufgrund Eigenname?
Eine Kleinschreibung am Anfang ist sehr irritierend und sieht in der Tat falsch aus. In solchen Fällen schreibt man das Wort, denke ich, am besten groß, insbesondere da die Großschreibung am Anfang des Satzes die Funktion hat, seinen Beginn zu kennzeichnen. Die Frage ergibt sich auch in jeder Sprache, in der man das erste Wort eines Satzes großschreibt. Ich schätze mal, die Antwort wird überall dieselbe sein.
