you override my MUA font settings

you understood that reason?

i follow that thread longer honestly interested
there where a few HTML respones and *all* oft hem left unread
because they contained a lot of content

>> he has been warned about playing net cop

who do you think you are calling others net cop because they ask for
easier readable posts while you are the one proven to playing net cop
due maintaining a RBL?

>> Is it written anywhere in the bylaws of this mailing list

is the response you should have been attacking

the only list you have been most well behaved on, unlike others, please remember our previous
conversations. If you think a posters post violates some RFC, ignore it, or take it up with
him in private, do not pollute this list with your bullshit. Thank you :) On Fri, 2014-03-07

 nearly any mailing-list has it written clear, some even reject HTML and
on some others you get warned by the owner (postfix as example)

e.g. "subscribe" or "unsubscribe". Spam filters are also more likely to
reject HTML-formatted messages; please use plain text

 because the message had no single HTML formatting and was written in
plain but as HTML may be a godd reason it hardly makes sense to write
email in HTML, they just explode after some replies/quotes and
forwardings with different clients while a conversation in plaintext
survises thousands of replies without lose a sane quoting
