asking the roommate to close the toilet lid

This sounds so dumb it's embarrassing, but I find the idea of flushing the toilet with the lid up to be seriously gross, imagining this spray of human waste clouding the bathroom with every flush. More often than not, this is how my roommate leaves the toilet and, one presumes, flushes. Is there a way I can say "Hey, dude, do you mind flushing with the lid down? Because it's gross to leave it up and squicks me out," without sounding like a complete loon? Or crazy or super anal? If your roommate asked that of you would you think he was just nuts? Would it be an unreasonable request? [more inside]

Am I allowed a wedding guest?

I've received a wedding invitation and I'm clueless on a point of etiquette. The invitation and reply cards are made out to "Mr. Indyz", not "Mr. Indyz and Guest." Does this imply that I am not expected or allowed to bring a guest? [more inside]

A President is referred to as such for life...

Throughout his introduction of President Obama, ASU President Crow referred to him as "Barack Obama", without the honorific. This bothered me immensely; I feel that it is only proper when introducing a President to refer to him that way throughout. [more inside]

Inappropriate to contact accidently found alumna?

When doing a search on one of the grad school programs I'm interested in attending, I stumbled on an old article in my university's paper that profiled a woman from my current undergrad program who stated that she was considering entering the very same grad program I'm currently looking at. So, being curious, I googled her fairly unique name and sure enough, she attended the program and graduated from it in 2007 or so. So, is it weird/strange/inappropriate to email this person?

Help explain this unusual cell phone behavior

Why do some people find it necessary to take their cell phone away from their ear and speak direct into the microphone? It's not as if they are trying to speak in a lower vice to be courteous, or that they are using the speakerphone or push-to-talk function. I find it odd, I don't understand why and I don't really want to ask the person doing it (unless you do it, if so, "why"). Thanks!

Spasm and spam only differ by one letter

What is a good source of online etiquette for cross-medium self-promotion? I'm thinking someone might be going over the line, but I want something to back me up so it doesn't seem like I'm just overreacting. A member of an e-mail list I subscribe to posts about her/his blogs over frequently, to the point of always posting whenever there is a new entry up. I'm through ignoring it, and more than one person has suggested to him on list that if people wanted to read her/his blog that they'd do it. I'm not sure she/he is getting it. However, I can't really find any good sources for this sort of netiquette - I'm finding things only related to blogs or to e-mail lists, not both. I'd like something to point to if I (or others) choose to reach out to her/him.
