Thank you.  That makes sense.  Now.  :)  But a little clarification...

Is that on a per user basis?  i.e.  If user A has personal sieve rules - 
the global script is not run for that user.  But user B doesn't have any 
personal rules, so the global script applies?  Or does the fact that 
user A has rules negate the global script for everyone?

I'm reasonably sure this is a per user thing, as that would make the 
most sense, but I just want to be sure I'm understanding things right.

Thanks for the polite kick.. :)
