I'm no fan of the phrase, but it's going to come up (often). Do we need...
- to flag it as offensive?
- to have a FAQ recommending against its use?
- to "suck it up"?
- to indicate that while one can self-identify that way, one can't use that phrase for others?
Just thinking "aloud" and wondering what others think.
Clarification (possibly the first of many): I find the word "Nazi" more tacky than offensive in this context and would love to see the phrase disappear. (I self-identify as a "pedantic *hole" to avoid using the phrase.) My bigger issue is that I expect the phrase to be used as a pejorative address to pedantic proscriptive grammarians. It's the same sort of conversation stopper (and argument starter) as calling someone a "fanboy" on a programming site.
