'Invite' is not a noun

At the moment, I am very annoyed by people using 'invite' as a noun. "Have you got a Gmail invite?" "Did you get an invite for Sarah's wedding?"

Fuck you in the face!

To invite. Verb. Invitation. Noun.

And that, my friends, is that. Anyone that says different is an ignorant sunvabitch. And I won't stand for any arguments along the lines of "but Americans use it like that." They may well do, but that doesn't make it correct. No, no it doesn't.

Today's rant has been brought to you by the news of Google's launch of Yet Another Instant Messaging Application, or YAIMA.
