@christianbundy aw gotcha, I must have misread. Sorry about that.

@christianbundy

Yes! We should all use Markup!

It's what I use on my blog and it's very easy to add the necessary bits when composing a message or document.

I believe it would translate very well when an email needs emphasis. The quote syntax is already used in emails anyway.

@christianbundy

Do forgive me for not verbalizing this very well. I don't mean to say that just because I choose to use a mail client that shows me the source of the HTML that I want it banned.

I'm just advocating that we stop trying to make email do more than it was intended. Email is a messaging service. Complicating it with web elements in beyond it's scope.

It's just my opinion that keeping email to plain text simplifies the service for everyone.

@christianbundy
By "most of the time" I was referring to when I get HTML emails.

@christianbundy @sir

This is the kind of message I get most of the time. To me this is far from worth my time to try and find the actual message I was meant to receive.

@christianbundy, my example was short to save blog space.

If you would see the HTML emails I get in plain text you would know what I mean.

I got an email from DHL about a shipment and it was so littered with HTML tags that I would be foolish to waste my time trying to find the information they were trying to give me. @sir

@christianbundy @jrswab they DO have to be. HTML gives you more than enough rope to hang yourself with, and web designers will and are hanging themselves with it - or rather, are hanging us. Plain text might have infrequent and rare issues like that - easily resolved with sufficient context - but these are _rare_. HTML is a nightmare always and already. It's thousands of times more complex.

Ark is how the creator says it in the video on the website.

I too have set my (work forced) Outlook client to only send emails as plain text. I don't send many emails for work though.

HTML email is bad and should be considered harmful.

Shout out to @sir for all the useful information on useplaintext.email

I'm now using email lists to send updates on new videos, blog posts, and other things. This way I don’t have to play to the algorithms on the platforms I create within. (This is not an issue on Mastodon)

Because of this approach, I can focus on tech content that teaches and informs others.

To date my most viewed blog post is a walk through on how to play Dwarf Fortress in the terminal.

If that does not show my target demographic I don't know what does. 😅 💪 🤓

@brown121407 I consider myself a Go enthusiast because the language fits my thought process the best. What I mean by this is that Go feels the most natural to me.

This is why I block so much stuff when browsing and chose to use sites with as little of a footprint as possible.
