It's a discussion forum. But why call me disingenuous? Everything I posted was an honest opinion. As in, I honestly believe that ""effect change" is the proper grammatical term.

Well, I tried, but with no luck. Maye you can give me a link. All my googles suggest that if you say "affect change" what you are saying is that change itself was changed. But if you effect change you bring about change. Not the same thing.

And remember, Har-tru got this going, not me.
