I'm pretty good at most things computerish, but I have to admit
encodings have me mostly stumped. I'm particularly surprised that while
the original post from Evuraan showed all sorts of "=?UTF-8..."
encodings, the responses from the people who could read it all provide
it an encoding that allows _me_ to read it.
otoh, _your_ post gets quoted as from "=?ISO-8859-1...", and I bet when
I see my own response, it'll make sense too - so maybe it's just a bug
