Okay, help me with point 2.

"Prepositions are not words to end sentences with."

Start with sentence above alone. How would you correct that?

I'm pretty sure the whole 'don't end sentences with prepositions' axiom has been rendered defunct in most mainstream literature by now. I see it being broken all the time, together with beginning sentences with conjunctions. Blame the schools.

If you were to revise that sentence to be 'correct' you would probably write it:

Prepositions are not words with which to end sentences.

The problem being that nobody talks that way.

... together with beginning sentences with conjunctions.

I thought that was one of those 'rules' taught to children only because it is difficult to execute well. Which means kids never get the chance to practice doing it and grow up thinking it is an absolute rule.
