e-gret (noun, verb): The feeling of sorrow, shame, remorse, or fear one experiences after sending an ill-advised electronic message (e-mail, IM, text message) that cannot be recalled.
I completely misread our flirty IM exchange, and now I'm filled with e-gret that I pinged her saying, "So, when are we gonna have sex?"

The regret felt after you realize that you should not have provided your email address to someone who then sends various annoying and otherwise intrusive emails.
Nancy continues to send me those annoying chain emails and keeps wanting to get together with me. I e-gret the day I gave her my email address.

to regret something you've done online or with a computer.

not to be confused with egret, a type of bird.
She had momentary e-grets after breaking up with her virtual boyfriend via an online forum, but forgot about him completely after meeting someone RL. Who she originally met on MySpace before meeting f2f.

He e-gretted killing his friend on WoW, but realized that sacrifices have to be made sometimes. Besides, he didn't have to worry about the real life repercussions, as he never leaves his basement anyway.

After wanking to pixelated internet sluts, he noticed that his computer was acting funny. Upon closer inspection, he found he had contracted a virus, the STDs of the computer world, and had instant e-grets. Who would ever want to share files with him now? If only he'd have thought to use virus protection.

As she got older and noticed her life slipping away, she realized how much of her life was wasted online, and had a ton of e-gret.
