I'm not offended, I'm bored and my time is wasted (as is everyone else's).

And yes, I'm well aware I have a killfile, but people who know about
that level of filtering are in the minority. If all you want to have
on the list is old-skool unix hackers, then 'you have a killfile' is a
perfectly good response; if OSI wants this list to have a broader and
more representative composition, then OSI needs to find other
solutions to the noise problem.
