You are not the only one who objects.  Alas, it is getting harder and 
harder to convince people of the benefits of this.  My general rule is 
that if it has a text/plain part along with the HTML then I might read 
it.  If it is HTML-only without the accompanying text/plain then I 
simply discard the message without further wasting of time. :-)
