Both privately to me and on-list, people today 
have reported difficulties getting through to the list. 

Well, that doesn't surprise me. 

In both cases the posters used HTML and/or MIME encoding. 
 
These forms are deprecated on Statalist and indeed the 
software running Statalist attempts to trap such postings, 
not always successfully. 

We have many, many times requested that people not use 
these forms. What is more, this request has been encapsulated 
in the Statalist FAQ for some years, together with 
a full explanation. 

What more can we do to make this clear??? 

Plain ASCII please!
