Reader Russ Schumacher pointed out to me that the Associated Press has now accepted both “over” and “more than” as in “over 500 people attended” and “more than 500 people attended”.

The outrage from the community is described here.

Where do you stand?

What do you think about the new AP style rules allowing "over" in place of "more than" and "under" in place of "less than"?
