I believe the file fits with all know descriptions. We accept a lot of

I've admited that back when I used to inforce the 3RR I delt with rule
lawyers but being better at it. Yes I can rule lawyer if I want to.
Often it is a far more effective tactic than simply yelling "IAR IAR".
Rule lawyering is just a tool. It can be used for good or ill.

Why do you insist that rule lawyering is "wrong" or "taboo"? It is a
way of dealing with people and nothing more. For that matter
presentation is a way of dealing with people and nothing more. If you
deny yourself a useful tool simply because it reminds you
uncomfortably of some of it's users, you have uselessly and
pointlessly crippled yourself.
