The horror of HTML (where it isn’t wanted)
I may need to give up on this; but not without a little noise.
Every day I receive some, let us say, 100 emails that are HTML-formatted. Some of these are really just text emails written by people who don’t know any better, or who have left intact the default formatting options of their email clients. Some are from people who think it’s really cool to add little formatting touches to their emails. Some are advertisements from companies that chuck in formatting, photos, even flash stuff.
So here is my plea to the world: Email is a text only communication device. HTML, or indeed any form of formatting or multimedia, is out of place here. Adding it takes away lots and lots of disk space and adds the risk of virus infection. So for heaven’s sake, send your emails unformatted, text only.
