comment Using “them” instead of “those”
@tucker please realize that in the reference you gave there isn't a single answer uses lazy or laziness, only in commentaries... And there too it's not prescriptivism.

comment Using “them” instead of “those”
First of all, it's not theory if it's not supported, it's just conjecture. I downvoted you because your argument is based on prescriptivism. What you termed laziness, can also easily be argued as evolutionary optimization of spoken English, where written English still has to catch up.

comment What is a word for a review of a review?
I disagree with meta-review, a review of a review is still a review it's not "beyond" a review. If we were to discuss the procedure of a review that would be meta review I think.

comment What is the difference between “each to one’s own,” and “a law unto-oneself”? Are they totally different idioms?
It occurs to me that the phrase "to each there own" has an implied shrug in it.

I slightly object to "anal retentive" part of the answer. I'd -1 but I think you can fix that ...

@tchrist you are making an assumption about units when you are talking about measurement, what if i told you that A and B are Yotabytes ; we can measure bytes quite accurately and there is a very easily measurable difference between 1.000000000000000000000002 and 1.000000000000000000000001 Yottabytes;

@slidoreth Your "correct usage" is actually incorrect and quite awkward, because you're decomposing the phrases at the wrong spots. Your first mistake is caused by the ambiguity of the missing implied noun _it_ between the like and the when. If you're explicit which would identify the remaining phrase (starting from when) as a compound object of the predicate like. Similarly, in the phrase I'm fed up with your telling me what to do, the with applies to the rest of the phrase not just to the word your. Rethink the way you're decomposing the sentences.
