Default Can we stop using Pop Psychology to define our brewing?

No one is or should be Anal about sanitation.
This is short for anal retentive. Its a stage in Freudian theory that you are supposed to emerge from and move on. If you were truly anal about brewing sanitation, you would be doing so at the detriment of the rest of your process as well as being annoying. Being anal retentive is a bad thing. It's a character flaw. Be meticulous or thorough on the extreme end or maybe just be expedient. If you are, in fact, anal then you are doing it wrong. In fact log off now and go re-clean something

No one is obsessed with brewing or addicted to brewing.
Again, if you are, why are you reading? Seek help.

sounds like someone's being a bit anal retentive about nomenclature.

Or maybe we should be obsessive about anal sanitation?

The use of terminology constantly changes with use and cultural changes. If that did not change humans would be communicating with a series of grunts and gestures.

RDWHAHB!

As an Architect... I loathe hearing the word "pop". Such as... "That will make this space pop." I've learned to deal with it and move on. We all have our pet peeves. I personally obsess sometimes about homebrewing as well as other hobbies and have no problem saying so. From dictionary.com - Obsess - to think about something unceasingly or persistently. That doesn't state forever or that it's a constant mental state, but in some moments, I think about homebrewing/other hobbies persistently... so I feel the word fits.

Well maybe he is right, we really should stop logging onto this site with all of our fellow brewers and try to convey our joy for the hobby we all share.

RDWHAHB!
You would never correct someone who said something like, "I like Miller light because it is triple hopped." because Miller is trying to re-define what that actually means.

You would never correct someone that characterized your brewing as being made in a bathtub.

FYI:

I think I'm down with the RDWHAHB
