I've come across some MN users that pull up on spelling in a bit of a nasty cat fight ding dong scenario. Are they what you call pendants?

This is Pedants' Corner:

Pedants feel very, very strongly about the correct usage of language in all its forms - spelling, punctuation, homophones, etc.

A pendant is something that hangs from a chain.

A pedant is someone takes accuracy, such as in spelling, very seriously.

Just like this post ...

Oooh. Have we got a jewellery topic now?

<<relishes being pedantic>>

Are. Strangely enough, I have recently visited Pedants' Corner. I may have been a bit silly and annoying there and made some words up on a thread and now it has disappeared! What the frippy frap is going on there then?

It's all about apostrophes, baby.

Hmm, don't you mean apostrophes'es ikl? That sort of thing. Hardly trollery.

Excellent linkage, Hope.

Mucho bumpage. (that sort of thing would seriously annoy a pedant, wouldn't it?)
