You will be glad to know that I used the editorial specified above as an example of such abuse of English.

The three-hour presidential forum was the most interesting election debate in quite some time. Six candidates fielded questions and responded to comments from an impressively large turnout of students. With current Vice-President Events Richard "Krafty" Bergen moderating, presidential hopefuls promoted themselves and their platforms in front of roughly 150 students, the largest turnout in recent years.
