I vote for mandating interleaved posting and non-html mail. The non-html is 
because, looking at code, especially python code, in a variable width font is 
painful and interleaved posting because it just is the most natural manner to 
carry on a conversation with more than one person.

...and for people who think that nobody can tell them how they should post would 
be also spared any comments from me (and possibly others too). Everybody wins !
