Fully agree with it, and had read it recently.

So I was trying to tell you privately, spare your blushes (if any) and 
not risk the misunderstanding that I might be publicly calling you a 
hypocrite -- because that is ABSOLUTELY NOT my intention.  "To err is
human, to really foul things up involve a computer", etc. I'm sure there
are quite enough examples of my own mistakes in various mail archives,
so I'm not too inclined to make life worse for anyone else.  Of course,
now you've made it public I've had to explain all that.
