FYI: When I make mistakes, I am not averse to being corrected at all, in whatever way it seems appropriate, but I when some fault-finding asshole finds faults that are not even there, I conclude that it can only be malicious because it takes so little effort to pay sufficient attention to avoid making the mistake of accusing others of making mistakes they have not made and if you take the trouble to post a correction, you better be damn sure it is _more_ accurate than what you correct. It this really too much ask? Is it really productive for those who mistakenly "correct" others to try to defend themselves by attacking the one they have false accused when they should instead apologize for carelessly jumping to wrong conclusions. Returning insults is pretty solid evidence that the false accusation _was_ malicious. /// -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
