Accidental lashon hara


"Rav Dimi, brother of Rav Safra, taught: A person should not speak positively about another, for as a result of saying that which is positive, one may come to say that which is negative."

(Talmud, Bava Batra 164b)

[If you have ever complimented a person in front of someone who disagrees with the compliment, you know what this means...]

Have a great day,
