comment Polite ways to swear when something went completely wrong?
It does depend on the person in front of you, your current social environment and all that. But if you use "Sacklzement" or "Zefünferl" in Bavaria, people will realize that you're looking for a politer way to swear. Of course, anything in standard German would be even politer than dialect.

comment What's the difference between “Ich habe dich Lieb” and “Ich liebe dich”?
You are entitled to your own opinion, but if "Ich hab' dich lieb; mich reizt deine schöne Gestalt; und bist du nicht willig, so brauch ich Gewalt" (Der Erlkönig) doesn't sound strange to you. Or think of replacing all instances of "Ich liebe dich" with "Ich hab' dich lieb" in works of Goethe and Schiller...

comment “an immer” in the sentence
Jetzt hast du mich überrascht! Ich verstehe alles, was du geschrieben hast, aber selbst könnte ich nicht so schreiben. Die Aussprache klingt ein Bisschen wie bayerischer Dialekt, aber doch ganz anders :-). Respekt jedefalls @_@=b.

comment Der, die oder das Email?
Can't talk about Austria or Switzerland, but all the geek communities in Germany that I've joined or visited are using "die E-Mail" or "die Mail".

comment Is there a non-regional German expression for the Swabian term “Gschmäckle”?
Are you sure "oberfaul" is standard German (Hochdeutsch)? It seems closer to youth language to me.
