And yet once again, the really annoying thing is not much what he said  
-- okay, we get it, he's an idiot -- but all the hand-wringing about  
it, plunging the signal-to-noise ratio through the floor.

It's no improvement to be able to skip his mails, but still have to  
sift through dozens of shocked!, shocked! responses to each  

This seems to be one of those cases where if we all just ignore the  
problem, it might just go away. Can we please give it a try? Pretty  
please, with beer and pie and ponies and Buffies on top?
