I am sitting here shaking my head, why would anyone have this watchdog/syslog stuff enabled. For a shared host this is garbage you are logging to the servers /var/log/messages. I have tried tweaking syslog to ignore just the drupal stuff. So what I am gathering as a server admin we have to go in and disable this feature? Or has somebody ran across a way to filter this. I have to go now before I say anything else.
