Clever post.

Dictionaries record the usage instead of setting standards.This upsets many people.

It's driving me crazy. Yes, I have a science degree, but I've got many English classes under my belt, and this is just insane.

Is 'up' now going to be 'down', is 'under' now going to be 'above'?

WTF?

As a member in good standing of the Grammar Police, I find stories such as this one infuriating!

Cube - In writing a definition you can't use the word in giving the meaning.
