Dear reader, English is probably your first language and you probably like to use fancy pants words and grammar that you think makes you sound smart. One popular signifier that you consider yourself a big intellectual is bothering to use "whom" at all. However, I'm speaking to 1000% all of you when I say you're using it wrong and need to stop. Reasons being:

1. "Whom" being an archaism that only serves to show off it's obnoxious in the first place

2. Since you're using it wrong it shows you're not only pretentious but also not as smart as you think you are.

That's why I'm asking you to just drop that poo poo once and for all. I guess some smart linguists might show up and say there's no exactly "wrong" place to put whom as long as it feels like for the speaker or something, and that's probably true. But I bet the people who actually say or write whom on the reg won't agree with that.

the difference between "who" and "whom" is the same as the difference between "he" and "him", op

but you're right, that don't mean the people who use it are smarter than you. what, they think they're better than you? like they can just laugh at you, laugh like you're a piece a dirt, like you're gahbage. callin you names, callin you stupid– it ain't right! you're a human being and you deserve respect!

Suck on that, OP.

Nothing in Jurassic World is natural, we have always filled gaps in the genome with the DNA of other animals. And if the genetic code was pure, many of them would look quite different. But you didn't ask for reality, you asked for more teeth.


I don't know the difference between who and whom and I don't want to know and I never will know and I don't care.

Nor me, but I could tell it's a profound statement by the use of the relative pronoun "whom".

Ask not thee for whom which the bell doth toll. It tolls upon thine and thine under which thou dost watch.

it's only okay to use "whilst" if you have one of those funny English accents where it sounds like "wowst"

e: hm I don't know what that accent is called. all I know is when I hear it I expect the speaker to have a black eye & a cauliflower ear
