What I wrote was "bare-faced" satire. My use of "Two", "Could care less", and "decimated" were all intentionally wrong.

I might of agreed with you in the past -- my feeling was that, due to the fact that people are lazy, language will change irregardless of whether or not we try to stop it (and if you think that's untrue, you have another thing coming) -- but I've recently started to realize that even though it's a tough road to hoe, we have to nip those changes in the butt; if we don't, and worst comes to worst, soon people will believe that wrong and right are one in the same, and I shutter to think of what that will mean to future generation's.
