Due to limited eyesight I have asked folks to send in plain ASCII, but
only a few actually do and that's okay. For all the others I first
change to plain ASCII body text before reading. For whatever tools you
use, I can't to that with your message and that's vexing.
As for the content part, don't mess with my messages. I might put PDF or
DOC in messages I send, but if I do something else in a fit of angst,
you do NOT have permission to alter the content in any way whatsoever.
You are required to discard the message in toto. Again, do NOT change
any aspect of any message I send. Discard it otherwise, preferably with
a note to the originator.
