I confess: I have violated my own self-proclaimed unforgivable sin. I revealed information obtained in private correspondence to a third party. Now I didn’t publish this information on my blog — if I had I’d have been forced to delete my own blog from my blogroll, which I suppose is kind of like dividing by zero. I don’t believe that the revelation was particularly consequential to the person who told me about it or to those toward whom the information points. Further, I have no way of knowing that the information I leaked is even true. And I thought at the time that the leak would be personally helpful to someone else.
Regardless of all these caveats, I fucked up. I acted hypocritically. I apologize for my lapse, and I’ll try not to do it again. As a self-imposed penance I will abstain from writing new blog posts for a week.
