Agreed. However the statements were about users who have purposely
subscribed to a list. And should that list send in HTML or plaintext. My
point being that in that case, HTML is fine because the reader WANTS to read
what you've sent them, and (at least in my opinion) prefers to have a nice
page layout than just courier font text.

Spammers. Phishers. Etc. those are another story entirely.

This is why God invented procmailrc files... Sort your mail at the server
into folders and you're winning half the battle.
