Might as well throw a vote in for me. I say filter out all text based email! Just
kiddin but on a serious side I would not mind going back to the good old days of
text only email from the list. I blow away most all HTML email that comes my way
simply because it irritates me. If I wanted a web page I can go to your site. Never
gets read unless of course it is about a virus. Got to stay ahead of the game
there. Never know when my RH box might get feeling left out and decide to be
affected just to fit in. :)
