I seem to remember people here mentioning some words that should be (or at least started out) capitalised, but that have passed into common usage & are accepted. I think it's kind of a crap shoot there. I am surprised that Luddite isn't one of them. If you get the chance, try neoluddite. That shouldn't be capitalized. (I probably shouldn't even suggest PALEONEOLUDDITENESSES.)

So excited to find it but alas, not recognized.

The National Institutes of Health seems to recognize it as a word ... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/5372516

So... I just found ICHTHYOPHAGE and tried it a bunch of times thinking it had to count if it was that long and I might have misspelled it.

No luck. It's definitely in a bunch of dictionaries.
