Yes, it's both normal and useful on the internet to break off
conversation to argue about a minor technicality. But it's completely
inappropriate in other contexts, to the point that it can be used for
comedy. Two characters, in the middle of a rather heated debate, stop
to discuss grammar:
"Listen - I've come to pinch her!"
"You mean who."
"Nay! It is the accusative after the verb!"
