I was in a vile mood one night and received several of these html

Hmm. Maybe try creating (say) a gif that says "Don't send me any more
HTML mail", uuencoding it and including that in your reply. Maybe they'll
get the hint. (As a polite alternative, would you like the intructions for
correctly setting up Netscape mail to not bombard everybody with HTML mail
to return to the cretins? )
