The argument my Grammar teacher in the uni replied with was that we study "the language of the educated", and "as soon as the changes of the language [using past simple where past perfect is due, e.g. I just found it] are incorporated by the majority, we will study them as well".

What are your thoughts on that? Do you think it encourages stagnation? Do you think it encourages grammar nazism?
