I write them off immediately as well, but for a different reason
entirely.  I am less interested in the inalienable rights pertaining to
and holy sanctity of the mailbox of a dud than in ridding us of someone
too dumb to know or to learn how to perform the simplest navigation.

I remember someone here was so invested in the education of idiots that
he set up a separate list and maintained the flounders on it until they
read the simple instructions of how they might help themselves.  I
marvel at that level of patience.
