Why I can't let this one go

Normally I take little notice of the grammatical or spelling peccadilloes of contemporaries. But sometimes the outre rears its head and I must take heed. Today's NY Times comment section displays one such case. In it appears a comment by a professed "English PhD." The following sentence is verbatim:

Perhaps this is a sine of the end times for our poor, brutalized language.
