Found these this morning:


Letter to the Times from the director of the Royal School for the Blind, Dec. 23, 1986:

Sir,

Radio 4 this morning (December 15) introduced the verb anonymise. May I therefore letterise you that such verbising terribilises the English language and should not be radioised by the BBC.

Yours sincerely,

Bernard Coote

I would never use a long word where a short one would answer the purpose, wrote Oliver Wendell Holmes. I know there are professors in this country who ligate arteries. Other surgeons only tie them, and it stops the bleeding just as well.
