I'm sure the person you responded to appreciated your response, and the
rest of us appreciate your participation.  I'm not sure you are doing a
"favor" to me or any other person except the person asking the question,
since none of us are responsible for answering anything we don't want to
respond to.

Congratulations! learning that you have a lot to learn is the first step to
true knowledge.  I've learned a tremendous amount from this list.  I'm sure
you can too.

The next step is to accept well intentioned correction with good grace.
