I truly hate those. Most often they now require Javascript, too.
I use ssh and neomutt. I'm going to write a macro to take the html
attachment and put it in a website directory. I've been doing it the
long hard manual way. I hate forced javascript. No excuse but sloppiness
to have that on a confirm you exist page.

In any case, this is just nice to vent a little steam out.
I don't think we can do much except chastise users of mailing lists.
Sounds like a good macro to send a polite form letter reply to evildoers.

Thanks for the great software and long hard work to find the most
miniscule hidden bugs!
