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
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...

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.
