The bulk of his replies involve some form of being condescending... so I'd guess he doesn't care (or, as previously stated argues for the sake of it and is simply a troll). He plays the "you call me...

I'm a foreigner if I travel more than 15 miles south of my present location. I have no problem with that term when it applies.

How about STFU with the "colonials" bullshit. Are you just not over the loss in 1783 yet? We aren't fucking "colonials". It is an insult, so knock it off.

As an aside, in California, it isn't an endorsement, it is a separate class. Endorsements are only for commercial licensing here, such as Air Brakes, Doubles/Triples, and such.
