Now, now. Take a deep breath. Take two.
I happen to type plain text formatted in lines of approximately 72
characters because that is a habit I acquired as a Fortran
programmer at a time when the angry young men on this list had
not yet been born. I don't feel that I am jumping through hoops in
order to achieve that.
But I don't expect anybody else to do so too. What you call "the
plain text expectation on this list" is the exhaust fumes of
a vociferious minority.
Please don't start another vociferous minority in opposition to that.
