Please don't reply to nutters

Perfectly sensible people replying to nutters
are cluttering up this newsgroup more than the nutters themselves.

Moreover, it is easy to get rid of the nutters in a kill-file.
But am I to kill David Ullrich because he insists on carrying on
a debate with JG which as far as I can see
is totally devoid of any intelligent content whatever?

Not only is it completely pointless,
it actually encourages the nutter to continue nutting,
since all nutters want is an audience,
they don't care if the audience agree with them or not.
But if left in a vacuum they may move to a more receptive place.
