Should people who use Hindi characters change?
How about Arabic? Hebrew? How about Linear B?
Why do we even want people only to post in English? Why not post
in whatever your native tongue is? I guess I'll switch to Spanish,
since that's my first language.

I don't speak Spanish, so the word I choose is random. If you wanted to
refer to something with "mañana" in it's name, would you lose the tilde?
The fourth word above <<ensenarme>> has that character as the
fifth letter. Spanish also uses the acute accent over vowels
as necessary. It is common among those who exchange e-mail
in Spanish not to use the special character you allude to,
and to omit accents. The other special letters used in Spanish
already have ASCII equivalents <<ch>>, <<ll>>, and <<rr>>,
and those are used where appropriate. I hear that the <<ch>>
has been removed from the spanish alphabet by the Academia Real.
I've yet to see a dictionary which follows that, though.
