Why?

2.After you had spread the rumor and you deeled with the consequences what would you do to make your friends think that you didn't mean it?

**PsyDAG**, Friday, May 16, 2008 at 10:58amThe first thing is to

*not*spread rumors. Respect the confidentiality of information you think you might have. It always helps to check information and ask if it is confidential.

However, once you have started a rumor, the most you can do is apologize and repudiate the rumor. I realize it is hard to admit you are wrong, but this would earn you more respect from your friends.

When you spread the rumor, you*did*mean it. It is relatively useless to deny this.

The apology and refraining from further rumor spreading seems to be the optimal choice.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
