    It's difficult to explain.

    Whom is the object form, who is the subjective. I always think of it in terms of him or he and her or she. If you could use him/her then use whom, if you could use he/she then use who.

    Whom shall I kiss -- I want to give her a kiss.
    Who wants a kiss -- She wants a kiss.

    If in doubt, use 'who' because hardly anyone will notice, that's what I do
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    I go with the "if it sounds right" school of thought. Tho' agree on the "when in doubt use "who"".

    Read books by decent Authors, that kind of gets you into the habit. Tho' don't ask me whom the best authors would be.

    I was going to ask before I read your last sentence.

    thanks manker, that explanation was actually pretty good. I hope if I say whom I dont look like a fool infront of people.

    The last sentence was actually just a bad joke.
