Russia questions ‘grammar Nazi’ for fascist links

Overzealous Russian officials seeking to purge the country of images of swastikas and other symbols of fascism have interrogated the head of a company who organises a spelling contest over his suspected links to “grammar Nazis.”

“They asked me how I feel about people who make [grammatical] mistakes, and if I feel the desire to exterminate them,” said Alexei Pavlovsky in a Facebook post that received wide attention in Russia.
