I prefer this from
Thus sophist (which comes from Greek sophist?s, meaning "wise man" or
"expert") earned a negative connotation as "a captious or fallacious
reasoner." Sophistry is reasoning that seems plausible on a
superficial level but is actually unsound, or reasoning that is used
to deceive.

You may claim it wasn't precise enough for you, but that's your
problem for being an idiot. Nobody here is under any obligation to
provide you with a formal education in the C standard. You were given
the answers, and several clues how to interpret the standard if you

didn't suit you. Call that exactness if you wish, I call it arrogance
and pissiness.
