While I'm not keen to add to the thread, especially since Barry
has recently said it's not going to be an issue anyway but...
Those of us who use our employers computers to read the list
may find it more than 'a pain' to be responsible for repeated
virus infections via a non-work related list...
The words 'career limiting' spring to mind.
I know there are ways around it (ie HOTMAIL etc) but since,
as people have said, there is no content benefit from using
HTML, I vote (if voting had any effect) to stick to plain text
which *always* works and is (so far) safe.
It's interesting that those of us who have been doing the whole
internet thing for a while seem to prefer 'simple but effective' over
'cute but potentionally hazardous'... at least with e-mail if not
other choices ;-)
I really like this list, and think it, and the subscribers, only benefit
when more people can easily access it. Any subscriber lost is a
loss of a potential viewpoint that, who knows, may be of actual
use one day.
Having said all the above, I too get a bit twitchy with all the HTML
and MIME formatting crud that I have to put up with. But, put up
with it, I do - with a minimum of whining.
Back to your regularly scheduled killi-chatter.
Andrew, who is amazed that the internet works ever but is *very*
thankful that it does...
