Mainly about your title.

Reader comment on item: When Muslims Leave the Faith
in response to reader comment: Who(m) Can You Trust

Submitted by S. Derman (United States), Aug 12, 2020 at 00:52

Interesting comments. But, mainly, I want to tell you that "whom" is the correct word for your title which you have written as "Who(m) can you trust." "Whom" is a word that is used as an object of a verb or preposition. In this case it is the object of the verb "trust." "Who" should be used as a subject. In your title, the word "you" is the subject. So you need not put the "m" in parentheses. It's not a matter of a choice of two equal possibilities. "Whom" is correct. "Who" is wrong. I don't know what religion is best, but I know when to use those two words.It's not much, but it's something.
