Subject Blank list messages (was RE: moderators?)
Date Sat, 27 Jun 2015 14:51:49 GMT
Ross, as I have mentioned to you off-list, I receive blank emails from you and a few others
on certain @apache lists.

I think this is a discrepancy in how HTML-formatted emails manage to get from one client to
another and I suspect that it probably relates to protocol discrepancies involving smartphone
and tablet email clients.  It could also be attributable to intermediaries, such as the list
server, or an affinity-email forwarder.  Also, the archives usually have the actual text of
what arrive to my desktop as blank messages.

In your case and that of a few others, I usually simply wait to see if anyone replies on the
list, because the message is usually quoted properly, so the blank message I get is not seen
as blank by everyone.  

This means that we also have the problem of "works for me!"

Welcome to the club [;<).

 - Dennis

PS: I also receive some list messages, but not all, with [SPAM] prefixes and I have no idea
what intermediary is accomplishing that.  I do everything possible to receive unfiltered email
so I can review "Junk E-mail"-filed incomings myself.

I've seen a number of blank emails recently.  Probably probe emails.

I am one, I don't think I should have missed something recently. If you have specific examples
of something that was missed I can have a look.

And yes, depending on how many people reply it might be good to get more moderators.
