You're joking, obviously, but I've seen and heard a surprising number of stories about attempted fixes which were profoundly ill-advised.Helpful “how to” hint for solving loud rotor sounds:
1: fully wind movement
2: unscrew crown fully(if equipped)
3: grip crown gently with needle nose vice grips
4: in a sudden but stable motion, pull pliers away from watch case ensuring a safe removal
5: using straw nozzle expanding foam, fill case until expanding foam exits the crown tube
6: quickly screw crown back into position, by turning in a clockwise rotational motion
7: allow 3 hours for foam to stabilize, and fully penetrate the automatic movement(if equipped)
8: enjoy your newly muffled watch!

Filing a flat spot into the crown, grinding down the lugs, and one guy who ruined his expansion clasp trying to modify it - those are just the ones that stand out in my memory.
This message isn't angry, that's just my thumbs typing furiously.
