Re: [opensuse] Sick of this...

My bank sends me email in html, and I'm not going to throw it away just
because I don't like it.

Any bank that insisted on spamming my email box with "rich" text wouldn't be my bank any longer than the time it takes to switch banks to one that understands the meaning of customer service. Paying bills online doesn't equate to wanting bills received online. My personal financial information doesn't need to be scattered across a web of email servers and their backups. If and when I do want to see a bill online, I open a web browser, not an email app, and have encryption in play to prevent thieving.

Paper statements fit the paper they are printed on, commonly using legible fonts, unlike most web sites and spam mail, which rarely prints to fit paper competently, if at all. Plus, I don't need to spend 10 minutes per page wasting toner and paper trying to print what I need without pointless web links and annoying advertising.

I don't trust cloud storage to have what I want when I want it for as long as I
want it, which paper bills give me automatically.
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
