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.

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,


Like hell they are. This purism argument is the must unbalanced analogy since Thom conflated Apple's pressure on webzines leaking information with Islamic extremism and murder.

and I haven't seen a single good counter point.


You're simply refusing to see them.
