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.

Is someone required to roll over and agree with your point of view because you've cited authority and shown some evidence?

No.

They may have good reasons for still not agreeing with you.

I don't know if that's the case here, but "Because PJ said" is not an answer to anything.

I am another person who thinks Groklaw and PJ have gone rather odd lately so I also pretty much ignore arguments coming from that direction.
