lol  That was classic.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that way, but I know there's a
whole new generation that doesn't seem to know what to do with plain text.

I really like the bridge between web forum and email list, but it still
feels like a bit of a gulf between them.  The fancy features of the web
don't translate well to text, and I feel the pain afresh each time I
get an email that says "my reply is in red" and all I see is black and
white. :-)
