If I see this sort of thing after I've told someone they should not be
doing it, they go in the kill file. That's then one more person who
won't be helped, and others who won't see useful suggestions if I have
them, I only have so much time to help and doing so for someone who
can't see the clash between their disclaimer and where they're posting
is time I don't have at all.
