Now and then we get a first-time comment that makes me scratch my head. I should be thankful. At other blogs, first-time commenters end their masterworks with this postscript:
By its very nature calling a person or entity a “troll” is to dehumanize and set up for abuse others just as the name “juden” was used by the Nazis to permit the murder of the rights, property and persons of other human beings.
It's early, but I resolve in the new year never to think of a first-time commenter as a troll. Because that would be equivalent not only to murdering his rights, property, and person, but to murdering the rights, property, and person of an entire race or religion.
Only I'd be doing it on the internet.
