Off of the web - a few clicks away from at the blindingly obvious
URL. You know http:/www.XXXX.com/ ... but replace XXXX with, well
I'll let you guess.
Or are you looking for an off-line source?

Actually, supposedly the Oxford English Dictionary has now changed
their opinion, i.e. it's something they approve of.

Actually, the Oxford English Dictionary does not discuss the issue,
but if it did, it would merely discuss the history of its usage;
the OED is not in the business of approving grammatical constructions.
Sure enough, the OED web site says their goal is to be descriptive
rather than prescriptive. I may have been thinking of "The Oxford
Guide to English Usage". That'll teach me to post something based
on what I remember reading in the news.
