Re: For all those pedantic bastards out there....

You see I think you may be talking about the difference between descriptivist and prescriptivist grammaticists, one lot say you can play fast and loose with the rules because its about flow and context and the others say you stick rigidly to the rules no matter what.

None of them say forget how to spell words though, thats just silly.
