I typically exercise K-mail's delete-thread a lot, too.  A mute-thread for 
K-mail I'd love, so that incoming e-mail on a muted thread is automatically 
deleted.  Hmmm, I wonder....nope, ignore thread just marks incoming messages 
in that thread as 'read' - I'd love a 'nuke thread' option that deleted 
incoming messages in that thread.

This is good advice to a degree.  Unfortunately, troll content creates signal 
to noise problems in the archives; if someone searches the Fedora archives 
for 'Java Solutions' the wrong procedures and ideas will be found.  
Correcting incorrect factual information is a necessary thing.

Doing it without getting upset is more difficult.

Incidentally, love you .sig.
