I am new here, (if fact, my first post.) I have looked though out the past postings and can't find this question covered so I am going to ask.

What does the above topic mean, "/dev/null'ing report" exactly? I am just mainly curious as to how to decipher the path here.

Thanks.

Ah, /dev/null comes from the UNIX world which can also mean the bitbucket, or the trash can. It basically means a report does not go anywhere. Please see http://forum.spamcop.net/dict/dev_null.html for more information.

Thanks. I knew it looked like UNIX, but it's been so many years since I worked in UNIX directly. Also, thanks for the informative link!
