Re: Have cultural standards gotten lower?

^^^I appreciate the update on the current favored terminology. I was never a mediaevalist nor ancient historian, so we can safely say that pedantry was never rampant. If we have come to the point that any basic knowledge at all is to be counted as "pedantry," we have proven the affirmative answer to the thread title, haven't we?

PS Locutus of Bored doesn't seem to have realized that losing it over "elevator music" is cracked. Unless cultural standards have dropped enough that an incompetent metaphor that undercuts the point intended gets through?
The people of this country need regime change here, not abroad.
