What is accident forgiveness? To me, it is the act of understanding that we are humans, and we make mistakes, so a person who makes a mistake should not be quickly judged or ridiculed. But rather, people should show that person empathy, compassion, and possibly humor.
I was reviewing some suggested edits on SO, and I came to a post that I didn't fully understand. I thought it should probably be rejected because the edit didn't make too much sense, but instead I was just going to skip over it. However, I was thinking about something else, and when I went to click "skip", I accidentally clicked "improve".
Right when it happened, time slowed down, and everything was slow motion. My brain automatically knew I made a mistake and I of course saw the "stop and pay attention" message yelling at me. I don't want this to be on my record forever. Is there anyway to get some accident forgiveness?
