Yup, I agree!!!

But in these days of Microsoft *everywhere, people
do not know email etiquette.  Their MUA's now have created
new pseudo standards  (ie. quoting).

And when you try to explain it to people, they get real snarky.

ie.  _I'm_ not doing it, the software is doing it!
     _I'm_ not going to spend the time to do it right.

and finally... my favorite...

Oh, thats the UNIX way of doing it.  UNIX is dead, there is
only one mail system 'Outlook' and if that the way it works
it must be the only way... the right way.

Argggghhh.

Yeah, and html- oh how it ticks me off to get html mail!  And of
course half the people who send it don't even know they are
sending it- and ask why my email isn't "white"..
