Sounds great.

This bothers me. Newbies will often post from an html mailer (like
Outlook or the latest Netscape). I'd rather they get a warning/notice
that the list only accepts non-html mail, and possibly hints on how to
disable html, rather than being "silently unsubscribed". Maybe they
get three strikes? But if that's not easy to set up, let them read the
welcome note again :).
