Well, you have a good point, and I will do that. However, I'm surprised 
there doesn't seem to be some uniformity on this subject.

Yes, removing them directly is an option, but I prefer to find out why

anomaly does deserve an answer.

To suggest Google as above, makes no sense to me. This is the place to 
ask, as another poster stated.
