I would agree with that article

Yes, me too.

Although it will be a cold day in hell before I accept "text" is the past tense of, erm, "text" wink

Bit of cultural pedantry: according to Dante, hell has frozen over: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cocytus (scroll down to section on Dante's Inferno).

It's interesting that this appeared in the Guardian. Those of us who read Private Eye might wonder if it is somewhat self-serving of "The Grauniad" to publish it.
