Eh, if this thread continues I'll have a better time to justify and
encourage the use of PGP signed e-mails.

You have choice. You may send HTML e-mail to this list. And I may
learn procmail just to send you to /dev/null. I'd rather not do that,
because I happen to like reading what you post.
If e-mail was run by Microsoft; your client could only send
Microsoft-HTML mail to the list, and your client would crash when I sent
you plain text. That's what we mean by choice.
I also note that you have not asked me why I think only plain text is
acceptable in e-mail.
