The editorial board of The Guardian has decided to formally retract the article “Error in Programming.” We have been in several long discussions to decide how to handle this situation. We thank those for speaking up. We agree that this article is inappropriate, rude and not reflective of the caliber of writing we would like to see in The Guardian. I offer my sincere apologies, and I hope you know this article in no way represents the views of myself, the editorial board or the Guardian as a whole.
