Comment: Perhaps you should, as well?

In reply to comment: Obombya, history is always (see in situ)

Perhaps you should, as well?

Specifically the parts where people come up with a label to put on their enemies in order to create an "us versus them" mentality, use the label as a weapon to desensitize and persecute, while expanding the definitions of the label to fit those who would disagree with the label-makers.

Honestly, how often do you see people calling each other trolls on this site? I can't read more than a handful of posts before someone accuses someone else of being a government plant or a paid blogger, and it's almost always base don nothing more than "I disagree with you". Perhaps some here should ponder that piece of history. jussayin'

EDIT: I guess what I'm trying to say is that while I agree with the idea in theory, I see it ending badly in practice. It's not my intent to start a huge debate over this though, just wanted to chime in is all.
