I understand that you seem (note seem) to be using a double standard,
and introducing a term into the matter which was not present in the
original post which I picked up on.

The example above, for instance, is a judgment based upon a *lack* of
understanding.  It is not a "fair" judgment - which is the new
term you have introduced.  Your original post did not use "fair" as a
referent.  So now we have (IMO) introduced the concept of justice into
the equation.

In my experience, all judgments are based upon subjective and personal
criteria based upon experience; experience which is good or bad, short
or plentiful.  Judgement is, in the first and last analysis, based upon
how we FEEL, although a great deal of thinking may go into the process
before the judgment is made.  And which is the correct spelling of
Judg(e)ment!  Burble ...
