Hello everyone,

There are certain individuals on all mailing lists that are irritating and 
often times down right infuriating. They become known to us over repeated 
visits to our favorite lists. I have found that using the DELETE button, 
before opening the message, is the most effective way to deal with such 
characters. After reading a few messages from these individuals, and finding 
that further reading, continues to irritate us, that they cannot or will not 
change their writing style, their thought patterns, their negative effects, 
their worthless contributions, it should become clear that nothing we can 
say, or do, will change who they have become. At that point my recommendation 
is to let them wither on the vine as it were, until they loose their grip, 
for want of life giving "input" and fall off.
