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


Actually, I don't *choose*, outside of the US of A, the rest of us have metered access. Just because you have bad manners to send crap to me in a format which I detest, doesn't make me elitist, it makes me a potential customer whom you might have pissed off or friend whom you'll never an email from again.

If I don't want emails in HTML, be courteous enough and don't ram it down my throat.

You do choose to live outside the USA. Yes, I do have bad manners. Yes I will send you HTML email if I choose. If that means that I piss you off, and you won't be my friend then yes that does make you an elitist.

Don't worry I'm not concerned that you wouldn't want to be my friend or customer. If you are that petty I wouldn't want you to be my friend, and I absolutely wouldn't want to do business with you anyway.

I default to plain text email like most, however if I choose to send HTML mail, don't cry over it, it's really not that bad.

What does it cost? $.001US?

Thanks.

Stop confusing New Zealand with the world. Just because you have ISP's from the last millenium that likes to screw their users doesn't mean the rest of the world does. In most countries either there is no metered access or you have a choice between metered/unmetered.

Say what?! I happen to live outside "the US of A," and I also happen to have broadband. Don't generalize things you clearly know little about.

Furthermore, if you worry so much about your traffic, what on earth are you doing on this site, or any other site for that matter? Please note the fancy borders around every comment, the logos, icons, differently sized text, colors, etc. They all cost a heck of a lot more on your Internet bill than your e-mail.

Please note that I'm not trying to be an ass or make you feel bad, I'm only trying to show you that your arguments against HTML e-mail are very weak and you're contradicting yourself by everything else you do on the Web aside from e-mailing.

Or maybe you're on of those people who turn off images, overrides every web page design with your own "no-style" stylesheet, and refuses to use any other browser than Links. But then again, why did you bother to add an avatar picture of yourself -- surely you realize that you're "ramming it down my throat?" ;)
