I don't understand how people don't understand English, after many of them taking it their whole lives. When people say "There are so much (insert word here)" I want to start :swearing: at them, it doesn't even sound right! So, what's your opinion?

Edit: I'm talking about native English speakers, not people who take it as a second language.

It's not as bad as when someone says "There's a bunch of (something)s" or similar. Either way, the internet is slowly ruining our language.

You just have to read the second line and appreciate it again, since "There are so much stupidity here" is a double fail.

This is such an integral part of the English language that I feel immediate and devastating action must be taken against the violators of this sacred grammatical decree.

tl;dr: It's not a big deal, get over yourself. A lot of people say "it's me!" which is incorrect.

There's nothing wrong with "So much" it's just that you put it in a horrible
sentence.

I love you so much.

Come on, man, stop worrying about the meaningless things. It's me and so much are here to stay.

We have bigger issues to handle in this world.

So, people have English? I know it's a language I speak.

The only thing I can think of is that it is supposed to be "There IS so much xxxx"
So unless that is wrong to I would appreciate the correct way of using it.

I hate it more when people say "you times 3 and 2 to get 6". You don't "times" anything! You multiply it for Gir's sake!

What have public schools come to?
