I personally don't have a big problem with it; needlessly increasing file 
size by >400% is nothing these days and I can live with having to click an 
extra one or two times and having to cut & paste if  I want to quote. Trying 
to be compatible with the reader's software went out many versions of HTML 
ago and of course today's traditional standard response to someone's "I'm 
having trouble reading your (and *only* your) web page/email/whatever" 
usually is "well, just upgrade your browser/email client/operating system 
etc." with an explanation why that is "necessary"; as I said, if it really 
bothers me I can just automatically send those messages to trash.

It's just disappointing somehow to see it as the default response in places 
like this that deal with vintage computer systems, where the challenges and 
frustrations of incompatibility are a constant issue...
