and Rapprochement is in the Air
We are supposed to be doing a moral/ethical audit of our previous year(s). What follows may fall under the heading of עבירות שהתוודה עליהן יום כפורים זה לא יתודה עליהו יום כפורים אחר but as there has been precious little new material here this past year I have been reviewing some of the archival material.
Additionally this represents the confluence of my real life (such as it is) and my bloggish life (such as it is).
I am addressing myself in particular to an angry (at me) and (apparently) aggrieved (by me) respondent who used to troll here quite frequently. A commenter who always posted anonymously but whom I dubbed דיין ומוכיח for his withering and dismissive critiques of me, my education, my background and, tangentially, my posts.
