LOL, at least David's advice wasn't about the client itself.  The fact
that flowed quoted printable is still a valid means of email record is
all and good and if your client cannot manage it then you're the one who
needs to change the client.

My "client", is an Awk script that I wrote:

http://github.com/svnpenn/tryst

which I only use for sending and replying to messages, and it works quite well.
For reading messages, I use the archives:

http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin

So no, his method is not valid, given that he is now knowingly ignoring the fact
that the archives require hard wrapping.

David is correct the OP needs to stop breaking threads and using list
etiquette.

That same etiquette would dictate that he implement hard wrapping with his
client, so that others dont have to deal with him (custom CSS via Stylish). As
long as he cannot or will not do this, he doesnt really have a place to
criticise, correct, or even comment on others’ clients.
