If so, why?  I thought this was FoRKEd a few months back (tho for the life
of me , I can't find it).   Yes, we all suck because we use outlook.
Yippie.  Stop being an asshole about it already.  I try my damndest to post
in plaintext, and I've argued why the unfortunate use of Outlook must exist
in my circumstance.  Sending stupid little pseudo-attachments through the
mailing list as an effort to 'show me' my stupidity is as lame, if not more
so, as sending the HTML attachments you seem to find so repulsive.

Yes, you are more l33t.  I admit it.  So stop being a dick about it and lets
get back to the bitfilled wonder versus attachment/html hell.
