[ExI] language

I would like to put in a request for everyone to stop and think before they
call someone a communist, or a braindead idiot, like I was (with no
apology), or just anything pejorative that applies to the person, not to
his or her opinion.  To do so is to commit ad hominem arguments, which is
beneath all of us.  I hope.

We tell kids that they can express themselves without calling names.  Maybe
we ought to avow that expectation ourselves, as presumably mature adults.
