Ole hyvä is not something you would use when ordering a beer:
English: A beer, please.
Finnish: Yksi olut.
I didn't say Finns are not chatty. Among friends Finns can be very
chatty. Do you consider Finnish communication the same as in US?

Under current rules you cross post with gentoo-dev-announce to
gentoo-project and set Reply-To to gentoo-project. That is what I have
been teaching all new recruits and will continue to do so until we
change the rules (I am not against changing the rules if most people
feel gentoo-project is not useful any more).
