We want people to be able to communicate with us.  Instead rejecting them by
default, I think we should take the trouble and talk to them (please by
private mail) about it.  Do you want to do that, please?  Most people don't
do this to annoy us, but simply because they are unaware of the
consequences.  Often, they might even be unaware that they do send HTML
mail, because it is the default in many GUI mailers.  When told about it,
many people will choose to disable it.

You are free to filter out or ignore HTML mail on your side, of course.
