The poster you're describing as clueless and inconsiderate is using his own 
time and postage to send someone in Malaysia a CD.  I find that aware and 
considerate.

I experience everything you describe as well, however before netiquette comes 
etiquette and on top of that, reprimanding != educating.

I agree with the content of your post. Assuming it's GPL, I've upgraded it to 
the next minor version:

HTML makes emails unnecessarily long. It is particularly disruptive to those 
without broadband. 

It also really screws up mailing lists in digest format. 

Given the sheer volume of html spam, you'll find some people
automatically bin html email anyway.
