This is a perfect summation of language pedantry against ability.

I come across so many language pedants, especially for English, it's unreal.

@athairbirb I wonder if this can be generalized to most forms of pedantry...

@t54r4n1 @athairbirb In the first look I thought it was about programming languages and I was like: OH THIS IS PERFECTLY TRUE

So yeah.

@athairbirb i really like how clearly this illustrates that linguistic pedantry causes linguistic knowledge to stagnate

@athairbirb I'm definitely at point B in that case 😂
