Turn Off HTML Encoding In Messages

Could you identify those users either privately or here on the list?  I had
no idea i was posting in MIME/HTML until a few weeks ago when you talked
about who you had blocked because they were not posting in text. I then
changed my format.  I think a good deal of the people that are doing it are
doing it without knowing they are.  Its a simple change depending on the
email program they are using and I'm sure everyone would like everyone to
get messages from each other.

It's worth noting that HTML, MIME, etc., are explicitly banned from
Dan's lists.  Around thirty people, however, regularly ignore Dan's
request - including some regulars who I would normally expect to
behave better.

Dan is a low-enforcement 'police yourselves' kind of guy who seems to
prefer keeping a low profile on these matters, making it all the more
embarrassing when he finally is roused to comment.

Mixed text/HTML posts are not only against the wishes of our host,
they're anti-social, potentially dangerous, and deleted on arrival
here.  So if anyone's waiting for an answer from me - check your
email settings.
