Mac OS X Since my Cube could not run Leopard, and I did not have any other Macs, I was unable to delve into Leopard right away. Apple NL was kind enough to fix this problem for us, by generously loaning me a brand new MacBook with Leopard installed so I could review it for OSNews. Read on for the findings.

You are complaining about bloat in e-mails and yet you have your picture in your posts. What's up with that?

You choose to look at this website, you don't choose whether or not an html email is downloaded, you don't choose whether or not HTML messages are posted to an USENET server.

In a USENET, you're forced to download all the messages, HTML and plain text. When you download your email, you download the whole lot at once, again, no choice in process.

When you view this site, you choose to go to the website, you choose to view HTML, you make all those choices yourself. If everytime an HTML email was sent to me, I was given an option to delete the file before it is downloaded, you would be right, but that isn't the case.

You chose to live where you have a metered internet connection, deal with it.

I prefer HTML mail because I can format it any way that I want. I'm not going to stop because someone is using a 1980s grade internet connection. It's 2007.
