That was mine :) Do you really think we should alienate people who are
considering joining fsf-uk before they even have chance to speak to
us? There are no "operators" in the modern world (this isn't Tron!),
everyone uses computers and 99% of those people use rich formatted
messages (email, social networking and IM), let's not rule those
people out of our fsf-uk discussions. (If they even find us.. as
forums and social networking are where they will be..). Anyone created
a Facebook GNU page? ;)

I have my default messages in plain-text myself BTW, but you're 10
years too late in your fight against HTML email.. HTML won and
CPU/Disc/bandwith is such now that it isn't even an argument anymore.

I don't mean to drag this debate on, but you seem to be responsible
for the list admin!

Cheers, Jon
