Fora vs Forums

Dave Rattigan says:

Since hardly anyone actually uses "fora" as the plural of "forum", I tend to regard it as a bit pretentious when it gets thrown into a conversation.

"Forums" is fine - we're modern English folk, not ancient Romans. :¬)


If you're modern fold, then don't use an ancient Roman word.

The singular of data is datum. I never hear anyone say "datas."
