there are 2 important things here, i think:coco wrote: Hypotheses: The textbookish Japanese, which is written by a native speaker, is not natural Japanese and it possibly has bad influence on learners.
1. if the reader thinks that your answer shows a normal way of expressing something, and it doesn't, then yeah, i think it can be damaging. I think it's better to learn to express yourself in a more natural way right from the start. Especially using textbooks, and grammar rules, people tend to think, "this is the way you should say x". Which can be a problem later on when you realise that people really don't talk that way at all.
But, if the reader knows that's what you're doing, there's no real problem with it.
2. Whether it's the most helpful way of answering. I said a little about this in the post above. For some learners, definately, it will be the most helpful. But, also, there's lots of people who can answer questions in that way. There aren't many people who can answer questions with the kind of natural feeling and style that comes from being a native speaker.
The "boredom" thing really wasn't meant to be the main point!!

leonl: i get what you're saying, but, i think it's kind of wrong in terms of language. I don't think its necessary to jump into some high level abstract japanese or something as a beginner, and i don't think that people shouldn't learn the basics either. But, there are easier and harder examples of natural language to be found in real native texts. Why can't you read manga if you want to, for example? Why is this an example of advanced japanese to you? The same thing with real spoken japanese. I'm not sure why you consider this to be harder than a textbook example. Whichever you choose to study, you will need to learn the grammar and vocabulary to understand it. A real language isn't about vacuum packed clean cut examples, its about expression.
If you say you "can't" do this, well, i guess i've been doing the impossible then...
Astral Abraxos, sorry but i don't understand quite what the matter is with you. I understand you like the idea of prescriptive grammar rules, but the rest of the world disagrees with you on that one, not just magamo. I'm not sure if your first language is english or not, so sorry if this sounds rude, but i think you need to look a bit more carefully at those quotes you posted, and you will understand the meaning better.
