Um, well, actually... I meant to send "Nice one!" to *Tracy*, not to the
list. When it arrived in my Techwhirling mailbox, I realised I'd hit Reply
All instead of Reply, and wondered whether to send an apology to the list. I
decided that the error did not justify a further increase in bandwidth, and
let it be, hoping everyone would just ignore or instantly delete an e-mail
that was clearly of no importance to anyone except Tracy. *Now* I realise
not apologising immediately was the wrong thing to do. Sorry. Argh. Sorry.

I think that depends on whether one wants to encourage people to discuss
their mistakes freely with the community. If I received an attempt to win
argument points after a post clarifying my own error, I might think twice
before letting people know about my mistakes in the future, whether I
thought it would help educate others or not. I'm not sure how that makes
the sarcastic response a "nice one."
