The place to fix this is at the listserver. Either bounce HTML emails
like kernel.org does, or strip the HTML. I support the latter but not
the former. It severely limits my participation to have emails bounce.

As for the top and bottom post thing, I agree top posting is annoying
but again, that ship has sailed on mobile. There's no going back, and
I wish this whole debate would just die by us giving up and going with
top posting as the preferred way.
