I'd prefer what Eric did (making a valid post, but apologising for using
a poor tool to do so) over someone feeling they can't participate in the
list discussion just because they don't have a decent email client handy.

Now, if someone was to make a habit of it, then sure, they should be
encouraged to switch to a better client. But the occasional post while
away from your regular computer? Not a problem.
