Ah yes, this reminds me of a thought of "maximizing rationality
whilst minimizing effort" which has finally percolated to the top of
my two brain cells:

When someone misquotes me, when is it useful or relevant to correct
the record?

A) When the misattributed quote could have an adverse consequence
on my internal life:
   - When I have an attachment to never being misattributed (bin
     there)?
   - perhaps I was involved in, or witnessed some less than wholesome
     rhetoric arising from misattribution, and want to protect myself
     from such possibility?
   - etc

B) When the misattributed quote could have an adverse consequence on
my external life:
   - Perhaps the quote could affect a potential employer/HR person
     assessing me as a candidate for a job?
   - The misattribution could be held against me in personal
     relationships?
   - Where I get credit for someone else's "positive" (yet still
     misattributed) quote - I experienced this once many years ago.
   - or perhaps other hypotheticals...


On these basis ("basii"? "bases"?) I have concluded for myself that
most misattribution has a lower overall/ personal energy cost, when I
ignore the misattribution. The only exception I make these days is
when others might give credit for something someone else actually
deserves the credit for. In all other situations, e.g. a potential
employer interviewer asking "so why the blip did you say this?!" -
would actually be to my long term favour ("welll... if you just look
a little closer, you might find I actually did not say that...").

Have a good one all,
