Grammar Police

Under the category of "bad advice" we find this gem, from an online article about unusual plurals:
"Here 'martial' is the adjective for military. So 'courts-martial' is preferred, but 'court-martials' is also acceptable."
Sorry, but "court-martials" is not acceptable. Just ask the Judge Advocates General.
