I also don't allow HTML messages on my list. And to expand on the
undreadable issue, I have had blind list subscribers write to me to
thank me for the fact that my mailing list and web site are simple
plain text based.
Keeping lists accessable to blind readers is yet another reason for
not complicating simple text discussion with overhead for uneeded
color and fonts. Color and fonts do not improve discussion.
