There are dozens, perhaps scores of email programs in existence.  Most 
do not read HTML and produce a ton of noise for very little information 
when HTML mail is seen (rarely read).  Same for RTF mail.  That is why 
so many people ask that email be sent as text only.  Just because you 
use HTML or prefer it (makes the text look pretty, I suppose), does not 
mean the recipients will like the garbage they have to look at.

Keep in mind that this is a world-wide community and some people have 
to pay extra simply for bandwidth.  For these people, HTML is an extra 
and unnecessary expense.
