Nitpicky or simply bored?

I do not understand why certain Homo sapiens insist whichever language is ‘deteriorating’ or not being as it should. Language is a reflection of the creatures that use it. Like the users, language changes with culture, ideas and events.

The purpose of language is to communicate. If a language–however broken or ‘mangled’–achieves this, what exactly is the problem?

The next time a Homo sapiens tells you to use proper <language>, tell it to speak in pure Anglo-Saxon, Latin or Sanskrit.
