comment Avoiding “time-controlledly” as an adverb
@DanielHarbour: Some sentences that I am translating right now: "Dieses Kommando fährt den Computer zeitgesteuert herunter."/"Mit diesem Kommando kann eine dynamische IP-Adresse, die vom Internet-Provider zugeteilt wurde, zeitgesteuert ermittelt werden."

comment Why we capitalize all race names but our own
The planet Earth is generally capitalized, not only in fiction. "Some writers capitalize Earth when referring to the planet" is therefore not correct – they all do that.

comment Are em dashes acceptable in lists?
@Hypercube: I just thought of another explanation ... dashes are OK in situations where parentheses were also acceptable, as in the dino example, and probably also in your original example. Colons are to be used if the real information is after the item, as in the song challenge example. Parentheses would not be acceptable there, so I would prefer colons over dashes.

comment “Race” is to “racism” as “religion” is to what?
The examples you give for "religious fanatism" might be true for many people who are not actually treating adherents of other denominations badly. I think that "fanatic" refers more to someone who approves of the destruction of other cultures on religious grounds rather than someone who truly believes that his faith is the truth.
