IMO, you shouldn't let the internet peanut gallery influence how you ride. I see nothing wrong with the way you ride and I ride 'off road' on the road, also. Who's to say riding off road style on a much better traction environment is wrong? Answer: those who've never tried it. LOL Sometimes it's more fun- the twistier the curves and the tighter the switchbacks are. I rode the entire Tail of the Dragon on my pegs, just to prove my point.
