I truly understand the frustrations of having to put up with the 'wrong' words and would normally agree with the arguments made by Mike and Company. That said, the forum is not a peer-reviewed publication dealing in a level of specificity that requires the exact usage of 'le bon mot' at every occasion. Contributors to this forum have differing levels of education, experience and even understanding of the many topics that fall under the rubrique of Canada's conflicts in the 20th century.
If I take myself as an exampe there are a number of times when I will dash off a quick response to either assist a fellow "forumite" or to dispute an argument. I do this in haste as I steal a few moments from the job for which the Queen pays me (handsomely I might add) and I often don't have the time to check my spelling never mind my vocabulary. This said, when I read the Bloggins won the VC I take away the simple fact that Bloggins did something incredible and, if Bloggins survived, would henceforth be known as Bloggins, VC. I don't picture a sporting event where a nice piece of bronze is up for grabs to the fleetest, strongest, fastest, etc... When I read that someone is celebrating Remembrance Day I am thankful that our veterans and the fallen are being respected and not that their service or sacrifice has provided grounds for Bacchanalian festivities. In other words (no joke intended) it is the goal of communication that is important and not the mis-use of the occasional word within the communication.
As I have stated in a previous thread, words exist solely for communicating. I agree that 'won' vs 'earned' and 'celebrate' vs 'commemorate' are important distinctions - and the careful wordsmith will ensure that the appropriate word is used - I would not want to see any proposed list develop into a mandatory requirement. Forcing people to use specific words is no different than forcing them to use no words.
