Whacky isn't spelt with an 'h'?
I mean, when I, someone in the last year of my PhD in English, find myself being "corrected" for saying "When you're done, could you pass that to Erin or me?" because someone has decided that it must always be "Erin or I," it's hard not to believe that any attempt to proactively escape the judgement of the gatekeepers is doomed to failure.
To be clear, I'm not a prescriptivist. But I'm very surprised to hear that there are prescriptivists who prescribe "to Erin and I".
