I tend to side with Wil's approach, so +1 from me.

I'll add that I tend to be more thread-biased than person-biased. That 
is, once a thread has lost my interest, I just ignore it, regardless 
of the identity of those contributing to it. I suspect that means I 
miss some interesting twists and turns in a discussion, but it's one 
way I deal with information overload.

So I tend to read any new thread, regardless of its origin. If I have 
time, passion, and competence, I'll try to contribute. I'll keep 
engaging the thread until it dies or loses my interest. Etc.

That means I sometimes try to provide a technical reply to Michael, 
even it means that I might just be encouraging something that ought 
not be encouraged. Once the thread spins out of control, I just ignore
