Responsible

It is important to remember that an antonym of responsible is, in most cases, not responsible for and not 'irresponsible'.

He was not responsible for his actions is correct, as opposed to He was irresponsible for his actions, which is incorrect.

This is a good opportunity for me to thank you for the wonderful work you do and the help you spread around so generously. Just a little remark concerning "responsible" and "irresponsible" - it seems a little cloudy, even contradictory. If "irresponsible" is incorrect and "not responsible" is the proper form, don't you think a short explanation should be added? Thanks anyway.
