I used to have GMail screen out HTML posts, however, I stopped 'cause
it just got so annoying to have bits of conversations missing.
Please, switch to plaintext.  If there's something so forceful you

strong of language for a public mailing list!

Do you know Java?  Want to build a video game?  Don't want to lead the
project yourself?  Want to work on mine with me?  Then contact me -
there's plenty of fun work to be done, and not enough me to do it :)
