I'm very sorry about that, I just noticed that I sometimes sent HTML
mails, too. My Thunderbird was configured to auto-detect which did the
right thing as long as I answered to plain text only mails. Perhaps it
would be a good idea to write somewhere that the users should configure
there clients to send text only mails to the list? I knew it but I think
if it's worth to open a thread for that topic it might be worth to write
a little (big) notice on this site: (or
perhaps I'm just blind?)

I apologize again,
