It occurs to me that although I've re-routed messages from Drew to
/dev/null for quite a while (thus saving me from reading that drivel), I
didn't do so for messages that reply to him.  I think I'm actually okay
with that oversight, as now I get to enjoy reading 3 different people
explaining to him why his messages are the type of message that resulted
in me null-routing him, but I don't have to subject myself to reading
whatever replies he comes up with.

(On that note -- kudos to the 3 of you who managed to reply to him,
explaining in reasonable detail why he's off base, without losing your
sanity.  Quite impressive.)
