That reminds me of a story I heard a long time ago pertaining to
"perceived quality". If you happen to fall off a ship into the ocean, do
you really care it the life preserve thrown to you is a bright, shinny
new one, or just one that works?

I have seen a few users here claim if they receive a transmission and
it is not in the format that they approve of, they will delete it. Now,
allow me to say this as nicely as I possible can. If some entity wants
to send an electronic document formated with a 200 character line
length, R2L with the characters inverted, that is their right. If the
intended recipient chooses to discard that communication, that is their
right.
