That depends on which definition of pedant you choose.  I think both NIX
and DD were using the term in the "rules lawyer" sense, in which case
you are wrong; that kind of pedant can only insist on things that are
defined in an existing ruleset.  Humans being what they are, there's
certainly a very large pool of available rulesets, but it's not

Pedantic enough for you?

footwear makes it easy to trap and kill.  -- Harry Hill
