Ennuipoet: 1000 Ways to Dye: You're all wrong. It's okay to end a sentence with a preposition.

No.

I didn't spend year learning these stupid rules for someone to come along and tell me they do not matter.


They don't. You've wasted your life. Have a nice day!

This map gets southeastern South Dakota wrong.

I can't believe I just typed that.  I can't believe I know enough to type that.

Point is, I can't believe I live in South Dakota.

Someone had dangled their preposition.


Cyberluddite: With whom did you learn grammar, Subby?  I'm guessing the copy editor who wrote or approved the headline of TFA, perhaps.


MaxxLarge: Ever wonder with whom your city dangles its prepositions?


You're all wrong. It's okay to end a sentence with a preposition.
The only time it isn't is if somebody else does it and you feel like being an asshole.

The gist: Somebody a few hundred years ago decided it was wrong, because he wanted English to be more like Latin, and in Latin there is no way to end a sentence with a preposition. The thing is, English isn't Latin, and is derived from German, which allows prepositions to finish a sentence.
 Or, as Churchill said, "This is the sort of bloody nonsense up with which I will not put."
