Is there a noun for the opposite of "gift"? I want to use in a context like, "A kind word can be a gift but a kind word said in malice is not a gift. It is a ____." Something that means like a gifting debit, a withdrawal rather than a contribution. What is a good noun for this?
A Trojan Horse is a "gift" given with malicious intent. If you have ever heard of Trojan programs, they are called that for this specific reason.
