comment Is there a general connection between value distribution and zero distribution for functions representable by Dirichlet series?
Possibly unrelated comment: If instead of strips you use discs of increasing radii then the property that you want is false but it has a reasonable fix: add proximity functions and use the first main theorem of Nevanlinna theory. If you allow different (fixed, finitely many, at least 3) choices of z then you don't need proximity functions (second main theorem).

Interesting. Have you tried to do something? Do you have any guess?

comment how to find cubic polynomial that an unknown subset of a set of integers satisfies
Is there a particular reason related to your application for suspecting that the coefficients are integers (rather than any integer-valued cubic, which can introduce some small denominators)? It would be interesting to know where does the problem come from (only if this is not top-secret information, of course).

comment How many solutions to $2^a + 3^b = 2^c + 3^d$?
Let me complement this answer, for the first step: to show that 2^a-2^c and 3^b-3^d are nearly "pure powers" you can use a lemma of Hensel (sometimes known as lifting the exponent lemma) instead of linear forms in log's. For instance, say that c<a, then c is the 2-adic valuation of (3^b - 3^d) and you can bound it with the lemma (linear forms in p-adic logarithms also work here).

comment Possible counterexample to a theorem assuming Lang's conjecture
At some point, I did check it (including Vojta's paper) and indeed, one just want evaluate the quadrics az^2+bz+c at 8 given points. In this paper, the 8 points are the squares of the alphas.

comment Units of $\mathbf Z[X,Y]/(P(X,Y))$
One can give an upper bound for the rank in terms of the places where poles are allowed (poles in the sense of valuations) by adapting the classical proof for rings of dimension 1. To deal with poles at geometric places, one can use as inspiration the analysis in J. Denef, The Diophantine problem for polynomial rings of positive characteristic. Logic Colloquium '78 (Mons, 1978), pp. 131–145

comment Is the field of constructible numbers known to be decidable?
Write to Videla and ask him. He surely knows the state of the art and he will be happy to answer; he is a very nice person. As I understand, the problem is open and there is a group of people (including Videla) looking into it.

comment Philosophy behind Mochizuki's work on the ABC conjecture
(cont.) The table in page 27 of IUTT-I gives an idea of what are the roles played by some of the main objects introduced by Mochizuki (and as VD pointed out, the hyperbolic curve "is" the number field, not the elliptic curve). Anybody can read this directly from the paper, but the only reason why I am mentioning it is the following: I was very curious about the papers (as everybody else), but the first couple pages seemed very intimidating. However, after spending some time with the papers on Frobenioids then the introduction of IUTT-I became readable after all. I hope this suggestion helps!

comment Philosophy behind Mochizuki's work on the ABC conjecture
For people wanting to known more details without having to read all the 500 pages: the answer provided by VD is a nice survey of the first 16 pages of IUTT-I (avoiding technicalities of how the several types of Hodge theaters are actually constructed, or what are the prime-strips). For the interested reader, the first 27 pages of IUTT-I indeed give a very good introduction. However, it is better to get used with the language of Frobenioids FIRST, otherwise the exposition can be intimidating. Unfortunately, it does not hint on the actual "source of inequality" (I mean, not beyond analogies).
