Yeah, I really like the myths and fairy tales of Europe, and the idea of dwarves, goblins, elves, etc. I just don't like seeing the heebs poison these tales (including seeing the word elf being used to refer to the heebs).In Old English the terms are cognate, so meh-meh. Aelf also denotes pale appearance, hence 'fair' and 'fairy'. Then there's 'wights'... Philology and linguistics a fascinating thing to study, because they often reveal subtle and more elevated philosophical concepts underpinning knowledge. People used to believe that the 'Elf Queen' cast her cloak upon the land in winter... alba <> alpa <> aelfe
Anyway. Hey, HBO just pulled the comments!
Apparently lots of other people don't like it either, according to the subject of this thread!
