I assume that this was a quote from the person who responded. There is
a difference between being careful with your own language and imposing
that care on others (unless, of course, it's your job to do so), and IMO
confusing the two is stepping over the line to humorless anal-retentiveness.

However, I must say that on occaision I too feel sorry for the people who
must endure me. :)

i absolutely refuse to become an unimaginitive humorless anal-retentive language snob in my everyday life. this is in no way mutally exclusive with the ability to communicate clearly, professionally, and according to the rules of grammar when the situation calls for it. for those who incapable of accepting this, i feel sorry for you. nay, for the people who must endure you.
