comment When someone asks, “How are you?”
+1. I would add that asking "How are you?" directly back is also considered rude in most places as it implies you are ignoring the question you have just been asked. Although this does appear to be common practice in the US.

comment Difference between “spicy” and “hot”
This is a very misleading answer which does not reflect current general usage. The linked Wikipedia article is using piquant according to a fairly technical definition which would only be used by food experts (presumably the author of the article falls into this category). As an native English speaker and regular curry connoisseur in London, I can guarantee that if you follow the recommendation in this answer you will just end up confusing everyone.

comment Is there a word for a non-geek?
Luddite is mildly derogatory and implies being obstinately or deliberately anti-progress. I don't think it's anywhere near being equivalent to "non-geek". You can be non-Geek and still favour or benefit from technological progress.

comment “you” versus “You” as polite form of writing
+1 - also worth nothing that some strongly religious people might be offended if you used a capitalised pronoun for a person (as the use of the capital letter can be seen as "reserved" for god only)
