Or is it the case that our language is evolving and so the rules should evole with it? After all, how many people know when to use less or fewer? I only know which to use because my Dad told me. They didn't bother teaching grammer at school. And people wonder why English is used so poorly in this country....

From sloppy speech to hijacking of words to mean something different altogether, for example the way 'like' is used in every sentence. I didn't pursue English beyond that which had to be done at school so I don't profess to all knowledge in the subject, but there are limits. I know that it is evolving, if that is the word, but it can leave me behind.
