As an objective descriptivist by nature, I am in complete sympathy with the underlying message (Get a life, guys. Language changes. Accept it!)
However, as an ageing former hippy, I shudder at what people accept today. It is clearly outdatedly, pedantically ignorant to attempt to freeze the way we use words by the standards of writers of 1600, 1700, 1800, 1850, 1900, 1925 or 1950.
However, 1967 (the year of my graduation as it happens) was the year. What we forward-thinking, liberal-minded highly intelligent people accepted then was pukka. Any changes since then are moronic, signs of the dumbing down of civilisation as we knew it.
