10 Apparently not everyone who uses kmail has the problem.
11 Maybe it's the people who use html mail?
12 Neil Bothwick's posts often have the "==20", but usually just one or
13 two. Some posts are positively riddled with them, to the point of
14 being terribly difficult to parse.
15 Everytime I look at the headers of such a post it says kmail, but
16 not every kmail user has the problem.
17 It's also possible the nix-to-news gateway handles html poorly.
18 Obviously, slrn is not supposed to handle html (which is how I like
19 it). Overall the usenet experience of this list is poor, but of course
20 the content is extremely useful. I just don't want all the email, because
21 it'll end up on my phone and it'll cost me.
23 Probably in the end I'll just end up reading it in a web browser.
