You really dont get how bad your making yourself look, do you? Accusing someone of making an "appeal to ridicule" rather than making a real response to their argument makes you guilty of the exact same thing as them. Note that my post is actually explaining your situation, not just making an accusation and leaving it at that like you are doing.

It is rather funny, isnt it? They say laughter is good for you, so I guess I should be thanking Nemo for improving my health
Actually, I'd be quick to point out that English, as with any language, is not a static thing (even the French have trouble regulating their language). It is evolving all the time, and so how people talk on the internet could be evolving way of English.
Also, we're not writing formal essays or pieces of brilliant literature to be unearthed by bored high-schoolers centuries from now; we're posting on a bulletin board on the internet. I promise you that none of it matters in less than a month, and nobody (almost nobody) will read this besides us.
