Santosh, thank you so much!  At first it looked like something beyond an annoyance.  Clearly something that just needs to be filtered.  By the way, there was a comment at the bottom of the video for another solution and was wondering what you think?  Not sure what the commenter was saying but I do understand clearly how to make filters and simply strip the results out.
