Hmmm, is this being too prescriptive? Don't we all know what is meant?

Yes, but. I've said that many times here about sentences and phrases and have gotten 25 lashes with the wet noodle (metaphorically!) from the likes of you and Goofy saying I was being too prescriptive. You can't have it both ways, can you?
