Is the attached html really of any use to those who read with speech?


Please answer in plain text, not mime attached html.

Thanks much again as always.

Please forgive if you really want to attach html 
and are using its features.

Do you know that you are posting in mime attached duplicate html?
Can you please explain why the mime attached html?
If so, may I please ask  which mail program is creating these html attachments, 
under which OS, and why?
I am absolutely certain that it is not my mail program, or anything on my end,
though your mail program may hide them from you.
This is why others may not have pointed out the mime attached html problem.

Your mime attached html post, which I have appended,
is exactly what I received.

Are you using html to display anything other than plain text?
Unless you really are using the html features,
the defaults should be set to both post and answer in plain text,
or uuencode, if plain text is not an option.
your answer mode should also be set to
answer in plain text, or answer in uuencode,
not to answer in kind.

I am most concerned about viruses in unintended attachments.

If you must quote me, please put your comments first.
I have already listened to mine.

I read email with speech,
So it is not possible to scroll past the html and quotes 
without listening to them again,
and the mime code after the header is not speech friendly.
to quickly get to the new information.
The mime attached html is far from speech friendly!


Thanks much again as always.

Signature Memetic Virus

I speak for myself and all who are or may become ill with any disease
including aging.
This does *not* speak for any agency for whom I do or may work.

The worst enemy of those who now or will need medical care is the politician 
who proscribes what doctors are allowed to prescribe and research,
   with the consent of their patients.

For those who wait until they are sick, it will be too late.

Those who suffer from diseases which might have been cured by fetal tissue 
research or schedule 1 drugs banned by Big Brother have the right to
hold those accountable who sat on their hands while they remained ill.

Those who understand this are strongly encouraged to modify this to 
fit their personality, and add this to their signature file, and
organize to recover our freedom from Big Brother.

Long healthy life.
