who, whom?

Since I started blogging I've become more aware of the crapness of my writing. I read a book about punctuation (!) and I take more of an interest in grammar (Tracy seems to have learned a lot that I somehow missed out on).

So, anyway here's what Harry Hutton has to say about the who/whom controversy:
Simon writes:
"Harry I think you'll find there's a push to stop using "whom" at all... if I find the link I'll let you know."

Harry replies:
"Get stuffed. Who?s the fucking English teacher around here, me or you? Most Australians couldn't distinguish a subject pronoun, an object pronoun and a poke in the eye with a fucking lump of wood.
Made me laugh.
