The Non-Conformist Grammarian

Your grammar motto is: "Who needs this?" To you, grammar is whatever people want it to be. Language conventions and rules are a waste of time. They're nothing more than a way for society to make yet another group of "us" vs. "them." You're the guy or gal who speaks and writes as s/he wishes and chuckles a bit when everyone makes a fuss about a mistyped pronoun.
