You are right!  And every valid entry should be meaningful.  Thanks  
for the reminder.

Sometimes it is hard to balance responding directly to a list  
question and to respond with what is really needed.

(And for me, I get distracted by things like 0xface being a number.)

However, there are some cases that are annoying to the user when  
handled upstream, such as allowing only words on a vocabulary list.
