You can get a good start by killfiling me.

Same goes to you. You don't like the "smart-questions.html" response, so 
why do you respond? Because you want to change people's behavior. Or 
perhaps because it pleases you to express your displeasure about it 
(regardless of any effect that expression might have on other people).

Coincidentally, those are exactly the reasons why I posted it in the 
first place. I care not a whit about decluttering the newgroup, an 
impossible task.
