Directing emotional energy toward prevention of aggravation is more
productive, perhaps. ;-)

My .procmailrc directs any html-only emails to the mail folder "junk"
(It could as easily be /dev/null)

Multipart emails, which include an html alternative, can only cause
bother if your mail client makes an attempt to use it. No hint of "bold
red" or bouncing smileys can confound the calmness of my email
experience, courtesy of mutt.
