Perhaps our netiquette FAQ should include telling readers how to configure a
kill-file for various mail readers.  If you don't want to read someone,
kill-file them.  That will lead to the obvious comment that you might see
some of their droppings in a reply, but that permits us to comment both on
proper quoting and on not feeding trolls.

We may disagree as his clueful:clueless ratio, but we can agree that he is
just snarky.  But on a related note, what thickness of skin should be
required of participants on our lists?
