    1. I don't see a question there.
    2. Yes, it is largely a matter of preference.
    3. Yes.
    4. No. Try: "I log onto Yahoo, and I chat privately."
    5. Yes.
    6. Who did you get married to? or Who did you marry?
    7. Keep the hyphen. It makes the writer's intent clearer.
    8. Thanks a bunch!
    9. It's the difference between the American spelling and the British spelling. (Say: "when they are used as verbs")

    4- I don't know if this is a British variation, but i would generally use log on with a system, like an intranet and log in with a site.
