Could everyone on this list follow the Ubuntu ML CoC?
There are at least two problems on emails with this list if we look at
Problem 1: HTML mail.
This causes downloading of emails to be very slow for some people who
are on slow mobile broadband connection (like me during week).
- From CoC:
Avoid sending emails in HTML format, if possible. Some people may find
it more difficult to read or reply to these emails. Also, HTML email
takes up more space, so people with restricted Internet access will be
happier to receive plain text emails.
If you cannot see what does that "HTML email takes up more space"
means, look at the message source. In Thunderbird and Icedove you can
see it by pressing CTRL + U.
Problem 2: Topposting
Many people on this list are replying above the original message. This
makes the email hard to read for someone who hasn't read the emails
before that. If everyone bottom posted, new subscriber could get all
information what happened on the thread before.
- From CoC (under "Technical guidelines")
Write your email underneath the email which you are replying to.
NOTE: I don't mean that people who are limited by health or something
else should do this if they cannot. But keep in mind that most of
people in this list have no reason to break those guidelines and if
they have, I would be interested to hear the reasons unless they are
too private and in that case I cannot see any reason to break them.

NOTICE! I am on mobile broadband with very limited time, so I cannot
read emails very much.
The best time to contact me is probably week ends when I have better
connectivity with good luck.
