Nick, you can call it fred for all I care. We won't agree, and I'm not
feeling like doing the semantical ballet just to watch you twist reality to
prove your point to yourself, becaues you won't prove it to me....
If you've made your mind up, I won't try to confuse you with facts then. :-)
Sorry. You'll have to continue this discussion without me..
I had yet another list owner thank me for writing demime the other
day. This person had been manually editing the html out of messages for a
long time -- her list owner had set her up with some majordomo bounce
filters and she had been hand editing the posts and approving them back
in. And what she couldn't figure out is why her service provider had
converted from majordomo to sympa, considering that it only produced
unreadable mime format digests. I explained it to her, she thanked me and
told me that she was going to try and get her service provider to help her
one more time, I tried to give her some pointers as to what she could ask for.
Yep, I'm living in the past, and maybe in another couple of years the mail
readers will actually do useful things with mime digests and there will be
a cure for incredimail. As it stands now, I still don't think that mime on
mailing lists works well. Things could change yet.
