Of course I've been wrong on the Internet; I just can't think of any examples off hand.

I once unintentionally (I swear!) misspelled Kotaro's name in a thread...in a particularly unpleasant way: http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=239&t=76474&hilit=mistake+wrong+error+typo&start=15

I once confused a thegreekdog post as being from xelabale. For those of you who know xelabale, you know that's quite a mistake to make.

I once confused an AAFitz post as being from captain.crazy. Picture that one...

One time b.k. barunt made a...I'll call it a questionable post, to be kind...and received a ban for it. There was some rancor among others about the ban, and I made the statement that I thought that b.k. would even admit his post deserved the ban once he returned. I was wrong.

I once asked the question about what the acronyms CE and BCE referred to (being more familiar with BC and AD myself) and made the comment that I thought I would probably recognize the terms once someone pointed them out to me. I was wrong.

I mistakenly discussed polygamy once when I should have used the term polyandry.

I once got a very sneaky math problem wrong.

One time I made the mistake of thinking that a game was not an online game, but it was due to a multiplayer functionality that it had.

I once confused the price of an annual subscription to Landgrab.

I once typed "One Toy Soldier" instead of "One Tin Soldier" in referring to the song by that name.

I once made the mistake of thinking that someone asking for the conservative we appreciated the most was meant regarding forum-residents only, when it was not.

I stated several times within the same thread that my operating system was Win95 when it was actually XP at the time.

LMAO! :P Verily, this was the most classic error on this site as it caused such befuddlement and shocked confusion among the regulars hearing you errantely describing the software that would run only on Win95! :) I'm not as technical as some here but even that caused me a smiley. :)

I was wrong to think that dial-up internet was the be-all end-all to the internet. Boy was I ever wrong!

I once thought that FLame Wars would remain a part off CC forever. Well, that did not turn out how I expected.

I once thought that the bright colors of this new phb format when CC switched to it would kill my eyes. Actually, it still does.

I thought that certain members would always remain on CC (DM, wicked, Norse). Obviously, I was majorly wrong on that one.

I thought that the internet was only for porn. Actually, I'm only half wrong on that. The other half is for CC.

I once thought I was born and raised in the United States. Turned out I was wrong as Player pointed out that I'm from the UK.

hmm... and here I thought we were supposed to list OUR mistakes. I guess that was another one of mine. (P.S. already acknowledged multiple errors too many to name).

It's ok Player, if you look at the list of people who have admitted to their mistakes then you are aware that you are in good company. I mean, I'm there.

Everyone knows the internet doesn't have any wrongness. Internet is only rightness. This post, following this logic, is necessarily right.

Any contradictions to this, are also right. It's the world we live in.
