    It appears to be used in informal conversation. It was inappropriate in post #3; to some it would even appear impolite.

    It would have been better to write something like: "Sorry, I don't understand the word 'Gil'".

    Incidentally, your question would sound more natural as: "Is it acceptable to say 'excuse me'' in such cases?"

    I am not a teacher.

    That rule is often right. "I am liking this sandwich" is a mistake for "I like this sandwich." "I am hating my job" is a mistake for "I hate my job." (But be aware that there are valid uses even for those that are jocular or highly idiomatic.) "Enjoy" is not the same as those, though. "I am enjoying this sandwich" is plain English, and "I enjoy this sandwich" is wrong.

    Re: Couple Questions

    Are you unable to see Gil's responses in red in his first post? Or Coolfootluke's comment on why enjoying is okay?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
