    grandpa here (June, 2004, lo those many years ago!), I don't rate much, but when I do, I follow a simple rule:  rate the comment, not the commenter.  A 76000 UID is no inherent sign of trollishness, just as a four digit UID has no unique claim to wisdom and truth.  While, as a shorthand, I always look at the UID of someone I don't know, it's wrong to simply react to that in determining whether to praise or troll-rate.

    All this said, it appears that your example of a misunderstood newbie, while perhaps escaping the boundaries of trollishness by a hair, is nevertheless a self-important know-it-all blowhard.
