"Even though it is not wrong to start a sentence with [the word however
followed by a comma]
, sometimes it is still a good idea to avoid it
because a lot of people think it is wrong.
Hmm, given the fact that language is fluid and ever-adapting to new generations,
and the rules by which we define what is acceptable is consensus-based.1 It would
seem that having a lot of people thinking it's wrong would have some bearing on
whether we would officially consider it wrong. However, I'm not even sure what officially
means with respect to grammatical correctness.
Ultimately, this is the point you're addressing though: if you're in the minority,
with respect to the particular social strata you find yourself in the majority of the
time, taking liberties where others do not make allowance can cause friction.
1 Albeit we elevate the opinions of grammarians above the average person.
Its truly more about: the rhythm of the dialogue, the different composition paths
of the music, the members chemistry made by their connection, the primal vibe that
some are able to recognize and all are familiar with.
