What's the difference between "Dienstlienstung" and "Dienst", especially considering that both are acceptable and one is FAR easier to remember (and only the latter shows up when you peek... is there a significant difference?

Why not "Was ist ein Service?"

I'd go farther and ask: what is the difference between Dienstleistung, Bedienung, and Dienst?

Why is Leistung not an acceptable translation?

Yea, the lack of Dienstlienstung threw me off. The word was so long I wanted a little assistance and it wasn't even there...
