Why do you write English words as they Sound in italian?

Ok, you found me! I'm an Italian fundamentalist. I know English but I don't like the substitution of Italian terms with their equivalent ones from beyond the Channel or the Ocean, even if they are shorter. It's ok when a concept has not correspondance in Italian, or one must use many words to explain a thing... but when there is a term or we arrive to use an Italianized term from English, taken from Italian and we re-take it... I don't agree.

Why should I say  "the media" (sounds like "midia"), when the media term (medium plural) meaning "the means, the instruments" (referring to communcation ones) is imported from Latin? I sould re Italianize an Italian Englishized term!? Resources waste, eh eh eh!

...well, but... what about the original question? Why do you write in "Italish"?

thus... not to take myself too much seriously. To continue a tradition (?). Because also who doesn't know English can read as he/she speak it?

Because it makes me laugh.
