cumaeansibyl doesn't like the term "grammar Nazi":

"I mean, the whole grammar = mass murder thing is bad enough, but it's also historically inaccurate -- if you're looking for a model of efficiency and ruthless competence, the Nazis are not actually where you want to start. A Grammar Nazi would be very dedicated to rooting out bad grammar in principle, except he wouldn't know how to use a semicolon properly, and he'd spend most of his time fighting with the other Nazis over the Oxford comma while serial comma abusers ran free in the streets."

Context believes the Oxford comma was only a propagandist conspiracy. QWP.
