Two wrongs don't make a right. Two wrights made a plane... that sort of thing. Chose the side of caution on this one even if you think "it isn't that much, is it?". It's just not that difficult to do the right thing.
Damn, I never should have posted to this thread.

FOR THE RECORD: I NEVER SUGGESTED POURING OUT OILY WATER ANYWHERE.

I suggested removing the oil from the water and then pouring out the water. Please don't twist what I said.
