Donald Trump has been compared to a fascist, as has Vladimir Putin and a variety of demagogues and right-wing loudmouths in Europe. But the problem with terms like “fascism” or “Nazi” is that so many ignorant people have used them so often, in so many situations, that they have long ago lost any real significance.

"Great callout on phishing training. I've seen some really useful guidance from Corning Industries that I liked: 1. Avoid strangers (be alert to senders you don't know) 2. Don't rush (be suspicious of emails that require urgent attention) 3. Notice the recipient list (look for recipients that don't make sense) 4. Appreciate personal touches (not vague greetings) 5. Don't be lured by dangled temptations 6. Keep sensitive data to yourself 7. Double-check links and attachments (run cursor over links)." -Martin Nystrom
