i honestly thought this "moral" thing of yours was out of spite somehow. not that it matters. ^^

also keep in mind that deviation from standard language isn't always wrong.

for example in englich as well as in german there was a popular rule of always writing question or exclamation marks inside of the quotation mark at the end of a sentence, even if it is meant for the surrounding sencente. like this:

Did Mark actually say "Your cat smells funny?"

rather than:

Did Mark actually say "Your cat smells funny"?

i've seen this in quite a few books, yet it's clearly logically wrong. and at least current dictionaries seem to agree (i'm not sure about older ones).

Don't be the product, buy the product!
