Except... blast with moderation.  Some of the glass-to-body junctions
on the Ms aren't completely sealed, and overenthusiastic application
of Dust-Off or the like can blow dust INTO the camera, where it hangs
there on the wrong side of a glass surface and sticks its little dusty
tongue out at you.  And not just dust -- I had a little haze of
dust-blower-can mist (something intrinsic to some of the formulations,
which you just wipe off if it's on an accessible surface) collect at
the edge of a front viewfinder window.  Eventually the camera had to
go to Sherry Krauter to fix something else, and she went in there and
cleaned up the detritus of my overcleaning.

She laughed at me.
