If your post was suppose to be humor, then please ignore the following.

Languages evolve, like it or not that is a fact. If they didn't you could use a 100 year old dictionary. You can't, get used to it. BTW I would guess that the poster you replied to was joking, I understand that is a hard concept to grasp in text format though. Also, just because our subset of english has evolved differently than yours, that doesn't mean we are 'semi-educated' or 'hicks' although either may apply to some specific individuals. I think it would be easy to argue that spelling should change to reflect the current pronunciation. Remember that even *true* English evlolved from some previous form and that generation would probably consider you an uneducated fool for pronouncing and spelling words the way you do.
