The bulk of email I get is still text/plain. Thankfully.

That's certainly how they've been treated :-)

Summary of previous discussion:

Q. Is there more information on the Astoria seminar?

A. Yes: http://astoriaseminar.com/index.html

So which is less helpful? The answer to a question asked in the 
previous post  which requires the reader to actually read down 
ten lines, or a long digression over some nitpicking, 
do-it-my-way "netiquette" with no bearing whatsoever on the topic 
of the thread?

How about this for etiquette? If you're going to go off-topic 
start a new thread.
