Are standards important in this NG?

This NG is used to field many questions upon the subject of
Electrical Engineering, upon its technicalities, and upon safety
issues.
Do standards therefore matter?
Does it matter that someone says, "mHz" when they mean, "MHz"?
Does it matter that there are those that think and practice the use of
the dB as a specific for voltage comparison when the dB is only ever
defined for power comparison?
Does it matter that ignorance is engendered by using, "antennas" as the
plural for, "antenna" when it is, "antennae" that is correct?
Does it matter that those "in the know" use handling practices that might
be safe at 12V when they're using 230V (or 110V in the Third World)?
Does it matter at all?

Standards do matter but it is best if those judging standards understand what they are talking about. You clearly don't.
I assume you are a 'jobs worth', think you know everything but don't and what you do know, you can't apply correctly.
OK, the guy typed m not M. Only people who don't make mistakes are the ones that make nothing. If you ever made anything you might have spotted how big a 4mHz crystal oscillator would be.

And your childish outbursts qualify for trollism more than anything else.
If the retort of, "Grow up!" has been levelled at you before, perhaps it is high time that you paid heed to the exhortation?

It also matters to any reputable engineer, that we use the exact and correct terms to describe engineering and to express quantities thereto.
I guess it wouldn't matter to uppity technicians who live by folklore?

The word is differences not difrences !

Go back to the original post that started this rant. The OP did not capitalize a single letter in his post. It could be that his cap key function does not work - who knows?
The available facts in his post show that he was talking about mega, not milli Hertz. They do NOT show that he was talking about milli Hertz. It does not matter if he is "uppity" or not, if he is a technician or not, or if he lives by folklore or not. His meaning was clear despite the lack of capitalization.
A little tolerance in an imperfect world goes a long way.

No, it does not matter. The point is to communicate and as long as the message is understood, mission is accomplished.

Don't forget liberal republican. I assume this means he comes back after last orders and buys everyone a pint. ;o)
This is starting to look like a bad re-run of uk.r.a. The contributors of this group have my sympathy.
