Ah, how ironic... Of course any reply to that message _HAD_ to be an HTML email
(and a screwy one at that, with really weird quoting...)

Sigh... no indeed I did not use HTML with any kind of funky quoting. The message is encoded as multipart/alternative. There is a plain text section and an HTML section. Configure your email client properly to read whichever you want. It's the way Gmail does it, I use Gmail, I am not going to turn off all the features in Gmail to appease the gods that be on this list so just lay off or go yell at the dozens of other people that commit these "heinous" crimes every day on this list.
For the love of Pete people stop hijacking threads to flame people. If you don't like what someone is doing tell them personally (or better yet ignore them), no need to reply to the list with your personal gripes.
