Who are you to judge?!

What a strong negative connotation! Judging. Judging things, judging people, being judgmental... these are not pleasant things that polite and civilized people do... right?

But if judging is such a fault, perhaps we should learn what exactly it is. Hmm... I don't know exactly. Maybe Merriam-Webster can enlighten us:

Judge. Transititive verb. "to form an opinion about through careful weighing of evidence and testing of premises"

Hmm. That's... not what we expected, now is it? Judging is bad. But forming an opinion through careful weighing of evidence and testing premises... that doesn't sound so bad. Hmm.

What does that sound like to me?

"Hmmm makes sense but nah"

At least not for me.
