I agree...but no, you're not a word nazi. This is on a whole different level.You're not. I was going to say that it is one of the reasons i can't take certain people seriously, but i bit my tongue momentarily. The persistence of it and the determination to write a lengthy explanation made it more baffling to me .
I would never prefer being read as uneducated (or to need an explanation attachment), but to each their own... i guess. I'll just go twitch in the corner and try not to be such a word nazi.
