Don't Merge Resentment and Spite
These are similar emotions, but they have different causes and different effects: We can harm a stranger in some petty way out of *spite*, but *rensentment* requires a specific wrong or injustice.188.8.131.52 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 14:57, 1 March 2009 (UTC).
- I've never heard spite defined as you put it here (nor as the article describes it), it's always used as a synonym for resentment. If this is incorrect it ought to be noted that it's a common misconception. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 06:21, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
Spite in Notes From Underground
I don't understand how my contribution was not helpful to the article. It seems maybe you felt the same way, since now it looks like you've undone your reversion? I feel as if my paragraph is endlessly more valuable than this sentence, in the article for "Spite (Sentiment)"
"'Skulk' is a fanciful or literary name for a group of foxes "
What is the relationship between spite and skulking? I don't see any connection or reason why they are on a page together, or why skulking redirects here. Skulking is sneaking around, spite is a desire for petty retaliation driven by envy. It looks as though someone inadvertently spliced two unrelated pages together. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 04:35, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
