comment Colloquial expression for “penis”
This answer is correct, but not complete. I don't know how to make it complete without going into the vulgar direction. (Is "Pimmel" vulgar? "Tito Pimmel" isn't, but it refers to a meal where the meat is formed like a penis.)

comment “Schätzen”: How to differentiate between a guess and an estimation?
I would just specify the precision of the value, like number of significant digits.

comment Is there a rule that dictates whether to use the eszett (scharfes S) or double s?
In Niedersachsen, we heard differently. I don´t remember, yet I remember ß was declared optional for a period of time (after the first Rechtschreibreform?). But I probably got it wrong :O and thus replaced millions of ß with ss illegally :O

comment Was für eine Imperativform ist die in „Helfe einem Obdachlosen!“?
Ich erinnere mich an ein Adventure in den 80ern, bei dem fehlerhafterweise "Nehme" anstelle von "Nimm" hinterlegt war. Ich brauchte zwei Wochen und ein disassembly, bis ich verstanden hatte, dass ich "Nehme Krone" eingeben musste. Urgh!

comment “It was him” auf Deutsch
Agree. And addendum: Not really sure, but I think "Meine Schuld!" will sometimes be used where in English one would say "It was me!" ("Ich war´s!") (in addition to "[That was] my fault!"). I.e. translating "It was me! I did it!" with "Meine Schuld! Das war ich!" appears more natural to me than the obvious solution "Ich war´s! Ich hab das getan!".

comment What new meaning does “letztendlich” contribute?
I don't like the idea of schlußendlich being an innovation in any sense. You are right, though, in that my question implies new words need additional meaning to become popular. Unfortunately, they don´t.

@chirlu Weil ich hier mehr verschiedene Meinungen von Leuten, die ich (zumindest beim Sachgebiet, um das es hier geht), achte, und deren Meinung mich interessiert. Dr. Bopp kennischnisch, und die Kommentatoren dort gehen zum Teil stark in die Richtung "spiegel-online-Schnacker". Nur meine Meinung.
