I love posts like this about language where someone thinks they're being "more correct" and in reality they just have no fucking clue what they're talking about.

Next he'll be telling us that splitting infinitives and ending sentences with prepositions are modern corruptions.

No one should have further considered whether slavery was indeed protected by the Constitution? The Supreme Court had ruled, so, for you, the issue was settled.

It was settled until the 13,14, and 15 amendments were passed.

Because that's what amendments DO: they change the Constitution.

The head of HR felt that rather than doing an actual job of HR, it was her real job to protect the company against grievances

I'd like to hear what you think the actual job of HR is since every HR department I've ever encountered has only existed to protect the company against lawsuits. They certainly don't exist for your benefit.

BMR calculators give an average estimate, not an exact individual figure. People vary around the average. To complicate things further, people are NOT equally efficient in their absorption of calories/nutrients from the same food.

How many QA engineers does it take to screw in a lightbulb? 3: 1 to screw it in and 2 to say "I told you so" when it doesn't work.
