Dear Anonymous

"regardless of how much this person irritated you it is extremely poor taste to post private emails like that online.
note to self: never email colin, you never know where it may end up."

The above was left by an anonymous poster. I did publish it under the post OUCH!

I have a few things to say.

Firstly, I did consider whether or not to write that post . Clealry I decided I would. I made sure the writer was not identified. It is still possible I made the wrong choice.

Having said that, the person who wrote the comment shows a lack of courage and integrity in choosing to snipe anonymously. It seems to me they can hardly expect others to heed their call to behave in the way they think is better when they themselves show such a lack of integrity.

I now err on the side of having decided to post it if for no other reason than it will make people think twice before they send off emails that are mean of spirit, as Anonymous points out.
