I think most of us are on the same page re this issue. While bleach is a good sanitizer, it should be thoroughly rinsed (to avoid pitting of stainless, to avoid potential off flavors in our beer). Rinsing with tap water is 'usually' ok, but given the availability of excellent no-rinse sanitizer there is little reason to use bleach, and a number of reasons not to. That said, in a pinch ya do what ya got to do, and use of bleach isn't the end of the world or the end of your beer.
Not all of us are lucky enough to live in an area with a good brew club, or close enough to other brewing friends. If you do have a local home brew club, join it & support the club & it's activities. You can get by with a little help from your friends. It's saved me a number of times.
