Remember we're talking about CPU overhead, not RAM overhead.
I know that-any program in RAM is useless unless the CPU runs it. Think of the countless CPU cycles wasted first for many years just running anti-virus programs, then later also anti-spyware (MS has their own now!). I don't have that problem.

Now please step away from your machine for if you dare to click on the reply button you will see a huuuuge CPU spike of 100% CPU usage for 1 milisecond. I'm not sure your big admin ego and your fragile machine can handle this... Just kidding, but you may see the point.
Not a big admin ego-just laying out my credentials before I started with my explanation. Yes, my CPU will see a moment busy when I click reply-running a program that I told it to run and nothing else.
