There was me thinking that my little anecdote would go unread (or
possibly privately moaned about), so it's been fun hearing all these
different strategies for dealing with the proselytizers of the world, even
the more worrying ones like Scott's above (tempting though it is).

doorsteppers but in our moral panic culture, I'd probably end up being
indicted for satanic crimes alleged by some recovered memory charlatan.
