It's a shame it`s a frowned upon to abort fetuses in the 49th trimester.

"Demonstrably untrue. If mistakes aren't corrected then how will people learn? Would it be considered making myself feel better if you were citing improper dates for historical events and I corrected you? I think not."

Certainly, however there is much to be said in how one approaches handing out such correction. When, as is most common on the internet, such correction is little more than a thinly veiled excuse to make fun of someone it serves no purpose.
When people feel attacked, they get defensive. When you`re defending yourself you tend to be far less receptive to feedback of any kind, greatly reducing the chance that you`ll actually learn anything from the experience.
I have no problem with helpfully coaching someone, or nicely pointing out an error. Look at the posts above ByOwlPost`s. The only purpose they serve is making small minded people feel better.

"Parents that think they can teach better than schools are usually morons. Or they wear tinfoil hats."

There's some really good ones too. I have a friend who homeschools her 3 kids and not for religious reasons. She makes sure they`re involved in other activities with kids their age (for example, her son is in karate) and her kids, especially her oldest (the other 2 are still pretty young), seems to have progressed further than kids his age who are in public schools. She`s teaching him things about science and the universe that I didn`t even learn until middle school or high school and he`s 5. Only thing I`m wondering about is what she`ll do when the kids are high school age, because I don`t know if she`s knowledgeable enough in certain subjects to continue teaching them past that point. But she`s doing fine so far.
