Either I don't understand what you are saying or you are being a
hypocrite. Andrew is saying that he doesn't have time to detail
with all the messages that get sent to him personally. What do you
propose he should do? I think people expect more that a message
saying "Thanks for you contribution. PS: Since I don't have time to
do anything with it, your message will now be discarded.".
