Re: The new academic aristocracy
In the shiny digital future, the new academic aristocracy will be
made up of those who know how to send plain-text email.
The good news is, YOU can join!
Folks, please. It's not that hard.
What _is_ hard is to find out that other people only get to see the
"truncated" message, because programs capable of sending
not-absolutely-plain text are also capable of receiving them and
displaying the text instead of the "truncated" message -- unless you
actually send HTML and only HTML, you can always read your own messages
I used to think there's only one kind of plain text. That's not the
case. I wonder if some e-mail programs or websites are even capable of
sending text so plain it doesn't get truncated by the listserv.
In the last 12 hours, Khamber Heslin, Michael Erickson, Allan Edels, and
Bruce Woollatt have sent messages that claim to be "Content-Type:
text/plain" but were nonetheless truncated.
