xoxo, your feelings are entirely justified and you have my full support. Contributions to the Foundation for Dangling Participles, Sentence Fragments and Grammarians without Second Homes may be sent here .

Of course the "link" doesn't work. Sadly, there is no such organization. However, it may encourage you to know that the Campaign to Save the Parts of Speech remains stealthily active. A friend is a pillar of the Not A Verb Society, a little-known association of wincers and cringers. A little research may lead you to the Not a Noun Association, the purpose of which is to stamp out such usage as "a crunch of chips."
