Subject: RE: BS: Abuse of words
People who don't know the difference between compared to and compared with!

Drives me nuts when newsreaders do it.....

'How are you doing?' - how am I doing what? Now 'How are you?' and 'What are you doing?' I can cope with.... but I've no idea how I'm doing.

People who use 'ultimate' when they mean penultimate. Contractions like 'gonna, wanna, innit and shudda'. ARGGGHHH!!!!

Sheer bloody laziness.
