Answer 1: Most websites have a "contact us", somewhere on the site. You can find it there.
Answer 2: Go through TOR, and use a TORMail account
Answer 3: Your English seems fine to me.

I agree with number 3. Americans themselves use language that looks a lot worse than that online. Don't worry about it.

For #1, you can also look up the website's WHOIS information and see if the contact listed is valid.

Just be really careful about doing this. Sometimes admins are willing to accept the help/advice. Others have a bit of a pride problem and will report you to the authorities for hacking them. Don't let that scare you from doing what you feel is the right thing. But watch yourself too.
