Yeah, I was inspired on how some people "discuss" matters.

It just proves they have no counter arguement to what ever your statement was ;-)
Last time I remember people said that to me was because I said it was bullshit to call people who voted for the winner of the Barbara Dex award "tone-deaf" (since that award is for the worst DRESSED contestant in the Eurovision Song Contest... worst DRESSED. Not worst singing or worst song, no the worst CLOTHES). And when I explained some workings in EU politics (which people didn't want to hear, as it went against their believes) as "countered" with that I misspelled the name of the Italian prime minister (if that was their best argument). And I once countered by saying my English was better than their Dutch causing them to reply in Dutch... Like I don't recognize Google Translate (since some English idioms that make no sense at all in Dutch were literally translated).
But yeah, I agree with you. It indeed confirms they know I'm right and that they ran out of good arguments to contradict me.
I find there is a particualrly arrogance withing native English speakers to expect that everyone should be able to fluently speak English.
I shall make it worse on ya. I've seen the same thing in Dutch to "criticize" people who actually speak Dutch natively, and the "your English is terrible" argument has also been used by people who don't even speak English natively. And then even more worse, I've once seen that argument being used, and I could (without looking for long) point out 5 spelling/grammar errors in the "Your English is terrible" post (only to have somebody else telling me that I missed 4 more errors). Well aside from English and Dutch I also speak a little bit French and German, and frankly, I don't care if I use "le" and "la" correct in French or "Die", "Der" or "Das" in German, as my prime concern is that they understand me. In English I'm stricter on myself, but I'd like to meet the first person who can write at least say 50 pages of text in English without 1 single error in them (regardless if English is their native language or not). Nobody speaks a language perfectly. And if they say "you're english is terrible." (I can see 3 errors in that one, and I quote this literally) I have an even bigger laugh :P

By stating somebody's English is beyond terrible, you do not prove the content of their statement is wrong.
