Why don't we move this list to googlegroups?

Hi No thanks, gmane works fine for weeding out the cruft.....

I don't call bouncing emails "working fine"... but you may have a
different definition...

Arguably, that is your fault >:-)

Emails with html are intentionally rejected, as the list server could
accept them if this was wanted. No need to use googlegroups for that.

Many of the people using these lists do not want html email.

I do not want HTML mail!

people that have filters that intentionally send any email with html

Linux experts, so I would not like to lose them.

:-) Yes, but its a delta function.

I use spamassassin and have HTML mail set high because HTML mail seems the province of spammers and marketing and people who invite you to visit malware sites. I'd rate this as well over 80% looking at my stats.

The few legitimate sources, professional sites and vendors I deal with, who insist on HTML mail I can whitelist.

HTML mail suffers so much abuse that its not worth converting a list that serves the purpose quite well just because someone configures his MUA to use "attach" rather than "in-line"
