Re: MIME v. TEXT



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----


It seems to be a moot point now, but I'll weigh in.  Aside from the
quite valid concerns of people on slow connections and/or who pay
'by-the-byte', I personally detest MIME/HTML formatted email for a
couple of reasons.  For me, pretty formatting and glitzy graphics
distract one from the actual *content*.  If I want that type of
content, I surf the web.  IMHO, it is used as a crutch by some people
who can't _communicate_ effectively in plain text.  To constantly use
this stuff, as some people do, displays a terribly Microsoft-centric,
USA-centric point of view.

Not to mention the fact that it is easier to imbed virii, web bugs, and
such in it.

I'm on a 56k connection and I don't like to download the stuff
either....
