[Mailman-Users] text-only versus graphical

Most of us don't, for a couple of reasons:
Mailman's HTML support is fairly dumb, which means that the vast
variation in MUAs make it difficult to craft HTML (and message
structures that contain such) that will be presented in a regular way
to the users.

Mailman's primary purpose is as a discussion-oriented mailing list
manager, not for distributing newsletters and/or announcements (though
it is easily converted to this purpose).

Lastly, for a lot of folk (or, at least, myself), HTML is a
four-letter word when it comes to email.
