Off-topic I believe is true, so why are you continuing off-topic discussion?

http://www.w3.org/QA/Tips/font-size summarizes the right thing to do.
Reducing the base size from your visitor's preference by an arbitrary
amount serves no purpose but to frustrate users and make your page less
accessible and usable. If you want more reasons why it's wrong, you can
find many on the web, but the links at the top of
http://mrmazda.no-ip.com/auth/wauth1.html and most on
http://mrmazda.no-ip.com/auth/wauth2.html should get you well along.
