The message was posted to the wrong mailing list to begin with.  And the
"bug report" was incomplete.  That I had actually fixed his problem
shortly before was just a minor issue.

The point is that I really do want those lamers to go away!  Not a
single day passes anymore without seeing top-posting, threads broken and
hijacked and offtopic messages.  Also, this problem is gettting worse
and worse.

What do you suggest in order to *reduce* the problem?
