Activist lexicographers

I recently got an email from someone who hangs out at trianglefreeforum, a message board in the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area, although it has people from all over. It's a lively place. In a "librarian from hell" thread I was upbraided for my use of a 1960 dictionary to respond to a patron complaint.

But just as there are accusations against "activist judges," there are also culture war complaints against activist lexicographers. Read the shocking story here.
