It took courage to PGP-sign my messages, but that's as far as I would go.
Making others aware of their mistakes is another, far more considerable

Me neither. E-mail conversation are a sensitive matter due to the lack of
visual, more subtle communication. People are even paying attention to the
ordering of recipients, so I must always be careful.

I can recall a few circumstances where ambiguity in textual correspondence
led to friction. I dislike E-mails among colleagues for that very particular
reason. Silence is passiveness is often the better option, I'm afraid.
