Ah, the obvious!

I can turn off speakers to the various windows on the reflector, but with
new people joining constantly I would spend a great deal of time just doing
maintainence. Murphy's law says that if there are 20 users, it will be the
20th one checked that has caused the problem..:-)

It would be nice to have an option to filter unsolicitated audio streams.
In the mean time your suggestion will help solve the net noise problem..
