Don't worry. From his regular posts, Karl seldom understands what
anyone else means, does not understand what this mailing list is for,
doesn't really understand Ubuntu and I suspect most of the time does
not understand his own posts.

I have Gmail set to mark his messages as read automatically as soon as
they are received. I recommend this tactic.
