Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could,
they didn’t stop to think if they should.

I'm just grateful that there aren't any people in the world who would
want to use email like this... oh, wait...

I've started using Apple Mail in OS X as my primary email client, and
have a policy if that someone sends me multimedia or HTML email I'll
use the 'Bounce To Sender' command on it; that way, if it's important,
they'll get a message saying it bounced and they'll ring to see what
happened (and I can ask them to only send plain text, 'cos my firewall
thought it was a virus'), and if it's not I never have to suffer it...
