I'm not talking just about HTML. I run a mailing list for my kids' school and people like to email 5 MB of class photos to the list. People also like to send Word docs (such as minutes of board meetings) as attachments.
These are unsophisticated users, so they don't listen when you ask nicely. If anyone is interested in some of the FAQs I've written up for these newbie users, let me know and I'll dig up the URL.
But yes, I agree that HTML should not be allowed on email lists. (no flame wars please).
