Um, what exactly is your situation back home? Are you at Uni? Are you taking classes in high school? Are you in adult classes? What situation are you in where you are constantly being confused in an awful way for geeks? Is it hurting your learning because people aren't talking to you? Is it getting in the way of trying to pick up Japanese girls? What exactly is the problem?I've been confused with those geeks way too many times (not just by japanese, even waps themselves. Though, it's better to have them yell at me that i can't speak japanese than for them to sit and pester me about their イヌヤジャ or their ナルト). I've taken offence to it quite a bit.
Usually once people have a certain idea about something (especially other people) they are a pain to change the opinion of. Heck, i might even ask a question i want answered, that dosn't seperate me from the wapanese.
Are you a native? I was always told (and noticed on my own) that natives typically don't say such things like that. And only a native would be able to determine my ability, so, by rating me as a non-native, you are becoming a hypocrite for trying to be something you're not, which is what you're accusing me of doing.
It's still at a rather low level from the bits and pieces that I've been able to glean here. Which is, of course, completely natural from a student at the end of their first year. I'm not knocking anyone's efforts, but just to ensure we're all interpreting the same situation...
