So why do they continue to use a mailer that mangles their mail?
(Rhetorical question, don't answer). Contrary to Bill's commands, they
do have a choice.

How so? That part of the message is supposed to be stripped away and to
reply only w/ the auth command. The key word there being "reply", not
click on every address their mailer corrupts and highlights. I view it
as an intelligence test to gain admittance to my lists. ;->
