comment “Befreyung”: Was there an ey→ei spelling reform?
I think the spelling frey was common all over Germany. With the help of a search engine you can even find it for Lübeck, e.g. "Der Kayserlichen freyen Reichs-Stadt Lübeck Statuta" digi.ub.uni-heidelberg.de/diglit/drwLuebeckStat1798

Date formats with / as a separator should be eradicated. The US format is awful for its inconsistent order, and other formats with / could be confused with it.

comment What is the best format to use when writing out dates?
I use this almost everywhere (except in sentences, because it is awkward to read or speak). I never had a complaint or even a remark.

comment In which situations would you use either “Toilette”, “Klo”, “WC” or “Bad”?
"für kleine Jungs" is just an idiom to refer to the toilet. I also use it, even though at 1m90 I'm definitely not "klein".
