I don't think any canned answer will suffice -- every context is different
enough that it needs custom help.  I vote instead that we stop answering
these reports at all:  let /F do it.  That will eventually provoke him into
either writing the canned response he wants to see, or to complete the
long-delayed task of removing this ceiling from sre.
