Maybe this is slightly off topic but my blood pressure goes up when I hear:

I like that better than students being described as consumers.
This thread has a therapeutic quality!
Yes, it does! I didn't follow from the beginning, which is why I've got a little cluster of replies here.
I don't mind regional variations, like the difference between standing in line in Seattle and standing on line in New York City. My particular grump is the redundant phrase "The reason is because ..." How about either "The reason is ..." or "It works this way because ..."
Ah, that was refreshing!
