Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

RE[4]: Thom has a point...

Not to mention that I appear to be touched by the rabies. Apparently the fact that I just took apart your rants is a clear sign of madness. Whereas leveraging a non-personal website to push your personal beliefs against any common sense, and then failing to address the criticism, is the epitome of sanity and good sense. I stand corrected.

Wow, this cracks me up. Where did you "take apart" his "rant". Both Thom's article and the parent post seem to be well thought out rational arguments, and I haven't seen a single good counter point. Your posts, on the other hand, have all in fact been total rants bordering on lunacy. Take a step back from the keyboard big guy. Taking this stuff a tad too seriously I'm afraid.
