Consider the following, (somewhat stupid), example:

Public Sub Main()

   Dim blackhole As File
   blackhole = Open Null

   If Not (User.Name = "myname") Then Error To #blackhole

   Error "User won't see this.\nIt's for special people only.\n" & 
   Print #File.Err, "STOP! Call the IT crowd immediately"
