You mean we actually do that? Sweet!

Oh my god, that's the end of the world, let me tell you.

Apparently it was not, as we're both still here.

Can't your list server just strip the html version if you dislike html so much?

I'm not sure silently stripping the HTML part is the right idea. The point is to stop people that don't know what they're doing (and thus don't understand why HTML is EVIL EVIL EVIL) from continuing to send the stuff in ignorance; i.e. to force people to fix - or at least understand - their mailer.

And even so, is HTML really so bad?

Yes. Many people (including me) hate it, it's a security concern, it leads to a non-homogeneous experience... (and links)

Wouldn't it be nice to have syntax-highlighted code samples?

If you plan to highlight your example code (and by what standard?), you have too much time on your hands.

For the record, GRC's newsgroup also rejects HTML messages (as well as anything over 20kb), so Cygwin isn't alone here.

We are Microsoft. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile. --Badtech
