Default Water in doors

So... after it's rained for a month strait here, I have this same issue. Same as if I go to the car wash.

Driving to work today I can HEAR the water sloshing around inside the door. When I took a DA Polisher to the body, water comes STREAMING out of it lol.

Looks like this guy has the fix by poking the hole. I guess I could also drill another hole, using the tape on the drill bit trick so it doesn't go through the outside panel...

ugh.

I used a small screwdriver to clear out all 4 doors. Passenger rear had so much water it was coming out the bump stop 3-4" up! it must have dumped 2-3 gallons...
Yea, no idea who would have thought that a 1/500th inch hole was enough to drain the door. It should have had at least 2-4 of these along the bottom.
