Agreed.  Does anyone else find it easy to filter out such obvious 
"noise" solely on where the text versus the header appears in mutt?

Text above is obfuscated a touch to avoid what I'm about to describe.

I reckon it's a vicious circle - they google/$BIG_ISP_SEARCH_ENGINE for 
the phrase "ALO a.r.t file" and since - waaaaaay back - someone asked on 
debian-user about it and d-u is presumably a fairly well-respected 
source in google's eyes, they get pointed here.  Cycle repeats itself, 
leading to more and more OLA-users making their way to d-u to ask that 
one question.

I keep meaning to set up a simple "Hello, user of $BIG_ISP.  Here's 
where to go to get info on your a.r.t. files" page and post a link to it 
in reply to future questions on this subject.

Has anyone dealt with a mom/pop/mum/dad and actually *solved* this 
problem?  Where /should/ they go for instructions?  Please avoid the 
unobfuscated versions of the words ALO and a.r.t. in your reply!
