I have seen members from The U.S. post on ATS threads the saying " I could care less"

STOP

The correct saying is " I couldn't care less"

www.worldwidewords.org...

Rant over.

True, but you face an uphill struggle here.
And we have native mistakes which are just as irritating (like people who say "on his behalf" when they mean "on his part").

If you understand then what difference does it make? language is organic, which is why nobody says 'verrily I say unto thee' anymore
really? thats your rant?

If one uses the English language it should be used in the correct form.

Alternatively use slang.

Shame on you.
www.etiquettescholar.com...

"Milk is poured after the tea. You may have heard or read that milk precedes the tea into the cup; but please, please, dear tea lovers, don't be guilty of this faux pas (another reason for banishment to the Tea Drinkers' Hall of Shame).

Don't put the milk in before the tea because then you cannot judge the strength of the tea by its color. Also, you need not hear some snobbish, chilly remark such as, "Oh, she's the milk-in-first type of person."

Where did this old milk-first tale come from? Samuel Twining has theorized that milk­first prevented early china from cracking in reaction to boiling water. That theory appears rather shaky today since boiling water is not poured directly into the cup. Boiling water is poured over tea leaves in a teapot. The leaves steep at least three minutes, producing a liquid of a temperature much reduced from the boiling stage."
