The use of "automata" to mean "automaton" will always grate on my ears. It has been explained to me that this is how things are now done, but I find it an annoying phenomena, and expect I still will if it persists for a millenia.

The plebs do evil things to language. And when I complain about that, a pleb will just flex his or her bicep and tell me to shut up.
But there are worse things that infect language like the most vicious of virii. If you think this millenia was bad, think about what will happen in future milleniae.
