I do not consider these reasons beyond the scope of this thread as most
documents can be effectively redacted using a few simple measures. This is
actually an important discussion. I understand that sometimes redaction is
not an option and in these instances other options are required.

Joel, would it be worth having some step-by-step instructions on a wiki page
somewhere to assist users with the process of redacting their documents?
Usually a simple search / replace regular expression is enough for most
documents. A list of some before / after examples may also be helpful. I
have assisted users with this before on the alternate user forum. It is not
going to help in every instance, but even if it inproved a small percentage
it may be worth it.
For some reason I thought Robinson might have already done this. But if not - sure, someone can go ahead and add it to "how to report a bug" wiki. Wiki is open for everyone to fiddle with and this surely would be good advice.
