Hello John,

I am of the same mind as you; I would prefer that everyone used basic text
for their message in consideration of others. Although I use a mailer
capable of handling MIME messages, I find it irritating to end up with a
bunch of useless files in my "download" directory, many of them .vcf files...

Also, since every message written in the mailing list is sent to over 500
mailboxes, I deem it proper etiquette to think twice about the content and
relevance of a message, before sending it out.
