I've been reading this thread for some time now, for some reason.

The Oxford Dictionary of the English Language defines  a "pedant" as one 
being excessively concerned with minor details and rules or with 
displaying academic learning.

I would imagine that you find it very, very difficult to pass through 
the real world, inhabited with real human beings who do not match up to 
your standards of "pure rules" and where the only apparent alternative 
is "botch".

Good luck with that.

You'll need it.
