Similar - inspired by thoughts from other, older threads - insisting that landscapes can only be taken with WA and UWA lenses. And lots of other examples.

Somewhere, possibly on this site (which would surprise exactly nobody), someone insisted to me that a landscape must be taken landscape orientation and portrait must be taken portrait orientation.

I think of most outdoor photos in urban environments to be "street photography" regardless of any human presence in the shot (or lack thereof). I use the word "most" to give me sufficient wiggle room to avoid wasting my time in a semantic deathmatch.
