I think, Dear Matt, that if you are using Eudora, you can quickly construct
a filter that automatically consigns Mr. Cook's rantings to the trash. The
joy of it is that when he roars in reply to this suggestion, I will never
see it.

If people cease to listen, let alone reply, he will find himself talking to
himself, which he may find interesting.
