Hoi Polloi

Amazing. I address issues of global importance each day but the debate over hoi polloi continues.

Sara says "Just because hoi polloi choose to butcher the language, it doesn't mean that we must do the same."

Tom retorts with this reference and claims he has others.

If I'm to adjudicate; Sara is correct, whereas Tom's usage is definitely acceptable. Personally I favour correctness over acceptability.
