Yes and no. 

I am quoted here, and indeed have often urged  
that people avoid MIME, HTML, attachments 
and other such mailjunk -- which is just echoing 
explicit Statalist policy. 

In this particular case, however, the difficulty is that 
people have names, or use words in their own 
languages (e.g. French, Spanish, Italian), 
that are accented or otherwise cause difficulty
for the rather conservative majordomo software. 

I don't think we can, practically and even morally, 
ask people to stop using their own names or their own 
languages, so some sensitivity needs to be
displayed in both directions.
