You don't like Shakespeare. I can respect that. You're not the only person I know who doesn't, and I'm not the only person I know who does.
However....
Saying that nobody ever talked that way is what I am objecting to.
Shakespeare's characters used the language the way Shakespeare heard it.
McNally wrote the way he heard it.
Mamet writes the way he thinks people talk.
Language evolves.
