I have to say this is just awesome (and indeed very frustrating as I
probably cumulate most of the things you're pointing..).

My favourite sentence, one I actually feel to be full a very British
(or Scottish) humor is indeed: "Native-anglophone readers will know
what you mean, but they'll also suspect you've got a funny accent. "

Thankfully, most of my readers know that I've got a funny accent when
I'm chewing English.:-)

This amazing document really deserves being widely known.
