"I just read a reply to a message that politely, but publicly, pointed
out that
the original sender had made a mistake in terminology. <snip> However,
I
remember from my years as a teacher that you should praise in public and
punish
in private.

** Not sure which message you're referring to, but if someone
posts incorrect information, we should think not only of
that person's feelings but also of the list-readers who,
if the item goes uncorrected, could remain misinformed.
