    That's nice. But it still behooves you to acknowledge that others, such
    as the OED, exist, and are also legitimate. The only thing worse than
    someone who, out of ignorance, uses an apostrophoe incorrectly - eg, to
    pluralize "apple" - is someone who has been made aware that multiple
    legitimate standards exist and yet continues to criticize others for
    following one of these standards.

  3. The OED, however, is descriptive, not prescriptive.
