Ha ha, I kind of figured it wasn't sarcastic. The cause is that Mike has an incredibly bad reputation with newcomers here so the idea of one complimenting him threw some people off.

There is a very slight difference between ず and づ. In the case of づ you can hear a faint 'd' sound at the beginning of it.

But yeah, ぢ and じ sound exactly the same. ;)

Hearing that would surprise a lot of Japanese people, I think. ;)

There is a very slight difference between 'fat' and 'phat.' In the case of 'ph' you can hear a faint "No, no, no, the other 'fat'! With a 'ph!'" at the end of it.

In some dialects, at least, つ and づ are different.

Hell, I thought つ and づ were different regardless of dialect. (Or did you mean ず and づ?)

It's not "du" or "dzu"?
