I love a self-proclaimed "grammar nazi" who doesn't capitalize Nazi. It`s a proper noun and therefore receives the capital.

As for the article, it can take its prescriptivist ideas and shove them. Everyone has pet peeves about words, but, hey, language is fluid. The world won`t end if someone pronounces a word differently than you do.
