comment Single-word synonym for a “pedantic rule-follower”?
I'm not sure why there is a downvote here. The single most defining characteristic of a Vogon is their unreasonable reliance on bureaucratic rules and formalities. That, and their bad poetry. I think calling someone a Vogon in this case would be witty and accurate, though not everyone may understand the reference.

comment Which English dialects have 2nd person plural?
"yous(e)" and "youse guys" is occasionally overheard in Wisconsin, as well. It makes me cringe when I hear it.

comment What is the origin of the name “grammar nazi”?
Do not forget the "Soup Nazi" from Seinfeld as an example from popular culture. A non-practicing Jewish character describes a soup vendor using the "X nazi" nomenclature. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Soup_Nazi
