In what borders on an example of the trope itself, I changed the example of "It is I" begin correct because that's arguable. I don't want to go into detail, but in "it is I," the weird use of "I" follows only from an archaic rule that's against the normal use of "I" and "me", whereas in "taller than I" it follows from the usual rules, so you don't have to invoke a rule that's no longer used to say it's "correct", but no-one still says that.

They should rename this trope "Grammar Cop" or "Grammar Police," since it trivializes the true evils represented by the word Nazi. Remember Godwin's Law.

This has 400 wicks and 800 inbounds, and it's a term used elsewhere; I doubt it's going to be renamed.
