Heartwarming example of someone getting called out for using oppressive language on Twitter and being classy about it

Screencap of a Twitter conversation: Ben Goldacre: Sorry about that disgusting advertising auto-tweet from @taptu, im uninstalling. Don't ever trust an app that rapes you feed. Vile. Foul. The F-word: That's not rape. Ben Goldacre: Apologies, I was angry, you're absolutely right, rape not a good word in this context, sorry.

No fuss, no drama, no “I didn’t mean it that way” or “I’m sorry if anyone was offended”, no flamewars, and no lasting hard feelings either way. Nice.
