I get badly-formed HTML emails that are difficult to read (and even more
difficult to reply to) in mutt. I can't think of many examples where
plain text couldn't have been used instead, and I have no idea why
Thunderbird defaults to HTML format by default. If someone sends HTML
email to a list (as opposed to me personally), in all likelihood I won't
bother to read it.
