Ponder The ethicist

My husbandís sister e-mailed him and others a story filled with misinformation about the N.F.L. quarterback Kurt Warner. My husband responded with a short note and a link to the Web site, which amends this widely circulated tale, true in its broad outline but false in its details. The problem is that he replied not only to her but also to all her original recipients. I say thatís unkind and embarrasses her; he says those who received misinformation deserve to know. Who is right?

Good response, that.

To stifle a falsehood is estimable.
Okay, Ethicist. 'Fess up, what's your username?

Spit Take

Your husband should, of course, avoid using this subject line: my idiot sister.
You're no fun.
