This meta question motivated this. By linguistic traps, I mean those listed at https://linguistics.stackexchange.com/a/12077/5306, such as the Etymological Fallacy.
For me, though it'd be easier not to, I repeat that 'I heed the Etymological Fallacy'. In the past, questions have been closed because the closers might have thought that the poster didn't know about it. On the contrary, I do 'heed' these traps and want to state this outright, to anticipate repliers' concern and to forestall extra (redundant) writing on these traps (for each question).
