Jordan Chandler, this is outstanding! We live in a world with too much brevity and not enough depth. Thank you, thank you for such a thorough response in a world of short attention spans. I won’t edit this article with your corrections so others can learn from my mistake.
I’m typically wary of Quora as a last stop though it can be interesting first stop for research.
And pedantic depends on your intention ;) But we should always strive for accuracy.
