ok guys, chill out, I'll set it up to use Plain-Text, its probably will 
be more inconvenient to me as I'll have to switch email accounts just to 
check on this lists messages!! because I can't set this account to send 
plain-text messages, whatever the result. but I'll do it anyway, I'm 
addicted!!! ;)

  I actually agree with Martin who pointed this out quite subtly. many
  people will
  be inconvenienced by an HTML-formatted message. If you did this in
  UseNet, your
  message would probably get devoured or ignored, much like messages 
from Google
  Groups (hit-and-run posters who do so because they "prefer it for many
  reasons"; when happy with the answers, not even a thank-you).

  I was going to follow-up to Amit's message, but the HTML caused
  that had me give up. So, the bottom line is that instead of personal
  preferences, the preferences of the _community_ need to be honoured. 
  PGP's messages to this list, right?
