Hey folks.  Let's not forget that these newsgroups are going to
attract *extremely* diverse opinions on virtually any subject,
and we need to respect the right of others to voice those opinions
(no matter how misinformed, ignorant, inflammatory, self-serving,
politically motivated, or useless they may be).  The best way to
handle these people is to simply ignore them and certainly not to
reply to their postings.  After all, the reason these people post
is to draw responses and thereby attach some sort of importance to
the dross they disseminate.
