Instead of just voting me down, please say why you disagree with my opinion of pragmatism.

Disagreeing with your opinion of pragmatism would be the wrong reason to vote your comment down. I voted it down because it only tries to derail the discussion to the topic of language.

I would understand a clarification on the lines of "ah, but I was actually meaning this" to clarify a misunderstanding.

Because that's not what the dictionary says?

(As a side note, I did not vote you down.)
