    @Blogg reader:

    I also think it is someone who doesn't *consider* themself one of the regulars.

    Stay with that name, and you will get trolled, too.

    I would call then good" states Philip.

    I would call them guilty and trying to justify one's own insidious behavior, merely because that person is the one doing it.

    One can make up the rules, then break them, merely because they are the one making the rules.
    That's what our politicians do, and that is just as hypocritical.
