  • I'm Good? APPROVED
  • What grammar bullies seem to want us to say:
    • Q: How is the play? A: It's very well!
    • Q: How are you doing? A: Greatly!
    • Q: How's your mom? A: She's doing weller, thank you.
    • Q: How do you feel? A: I feel tiredly.
    • Q: How's the new job? A: It has me working very hardly.
Most of this is a sad lack of understanding about when to use adjectives and when to use adverbs. The phrase "I am <single unmodified word>" begs for an adjective not an adverb. So "I'm good" is absolutely correct.
