I went to have a read of Language log last night... (do I sound more intelligent saying that?) and the latest post was about a recently founded British society, S.P.E.C.S, intent on defending proper English spelling and language, the site of which I duly visited, because if Mark Liberman says so, then I do so.
I shared Mark Liberman's dismay at first. And isn't it cool that I share something with Mark Liberman?
Well, go visit is all I can say. They're mad.
