tempted to include all of MJ's reply here, to get round Jon's

My interpretation is that you only appeal to a certain demographic :-)

Looking back at the companies I've interacted with over the last month
or so, they are all HTML mailers. However they are all medium/large

Must have missed it ....

Meanwhile, in a previous reply, you said:

Can I be the first to point out that you can't "close" comments on a
mailing list (unless of course you go moderated). However you can
close comments on web-based forums and message boards, which is where
most of the "normal" people have fled to, to escape the evils of
plain-text-only user-unfriendly mailing lists .... :-P
