You were very quick to say that you will never be able to agree with a certain construction no matter what evebody else says - be it some authoritives of linguistics or the natives... It doesn't matter. Sure. What the dickens do they know, right? ;-)
I do respect other people's opinions and I am also allowed to express mine.
It's hard to believe that a (good) linguist would say it is grammatically correct if a sg verb agrees with a plural noun... I don't believe that most linguists would agree on that. On the other hand it's a completely different thing if a native says that it sounds fine to him/her or that it is widely used in informal language...
I think it's no use to continue this discussion, though I was enjoying it.
