New English?

Franklin M. Cloud:
I have noticed for some time that posters use then instead of than as I was taught years ago. An example  to explain is: "I like legal limit amps better than 500 watt amps".  Some would write better then 500 watt amps. Has there been a word change in schools? I am serious to know as I see this often. Thanks for any comment.

It appears that you actually meant that you ‘couldn’t care less’, else you’re caring more than you care to care, eh wot ?
