I think that there is a big difference between a 'fashion police' and a 'fashion nazi'. KJust like there is abg differnece between a 'fire-police' and a 'fire-nazi'.
The former will come to me and say "wooden Inro with carved netsuke are a bit out of time for a Muromachi Samurai".
The latter will demand, "Jutte isn't Period so I don't wnt t osee you wearing those Jutte-Waraji at my event!" even though I made them myself out of whatever I had that gave the appearance of reality.
I've been to events where I wish there WERE fire-police.
I am an early riser and thus an early sleeper (too many years in the Air Force) and one event, I fell asleep while the partyng was in full swing.
Woke up early in the am to .. answer nature's call... and founf the bonfire still roaring (not burning to coals but waist high at least) with a bottle of lighter fluid nearby.
AND no one around. THe last person had appeared to have tossed all the wood on (to save wasting it I suppose) then gon to bed.
So I put the thing out and explored the downwind desert (in my pajamas) looking for sparks.
BUT, I have also woken up ealry, started my small coking fire from banked coals and went inside to change only to find a fire-nazi putting it out because he felt that NO fire should EVER be unattended. Plus a stern lecture to which I replied, "Who made you the fire warden?"
The former is someone who suggests in a positive manner.
The latter is a self-appointed fascist who lives to abuse people for innocent mistakes.
