Stormy, I just realized you’re actually writing emails with formatted text 😮
Personally, I prefer plain text, and I’m very happy that free software mailing lists (in opposition to non-IT mailing lists) have mostly plain text emails. But I really liked the way you use mostly simple text, and here and there you put emphasis (pun intended) on a word, provide a link, or make a list. Now I realize a few more people do write like you.
I’m still going to write emails in plain text, but I might consider HTML for emails with links and such 🙂
