Prevent Calibre from sending pub date?

Is there a tweak or template that I can use to prevent Calibre from sending the publishing date of an ebook when sending to my Kindle DX? I like to sort by Author and have determined that the Kindle will sort by title within Author sort if I delete the publishing date in Calibre, but I would like to leave the published date in Calibre and just not have it sent to the device.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Manichean
Sorry for posting in the wrong forum. I am new to all of this and still learning my way around.
I probably was not clear enough in the question I was asking.
Just to clarify:
Is the published date of an ebook in the meta-data that Calibre sends?
If so is there some way to prevent Calibre from sending that information?

Anyone??
I would think that there would be a way to do this in Calibre with a template or a plugboard.
I am not a programmer and don't have a clue where to start.

There is no way (that I know of) to prevent the pub date from being included in the book's metadata.
