The place to fix this is at the listserver. Either bounce HTML emails
like kernel.org does, or strip the HTML. I support the latter but not
the former. It severely limits my participation to have emails bounce.
As for the top and bottom post thing, I agree top posting is annoying
but again, that ship has sailed on mobile. There's no going back, and
I wish this whole debate would just die by us giving up and going with
top posting as the preferred way.
It just means the conversation shifts for when someone posts in context that they are not following the social path.. you then end up with long diatribes about how in-context breaks X,Y,Z things that top-posting people require. In the end, it is mostly about social filtering... there are those who follow 'a convention' and those who do not. We are filtering our in-house people versus our unclean just like any other org.
