Only that *all* the problematical characters in your posting are
displayed here as question marks, both the "correct" and the
incorrect versions.

  User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Thunderbird/60.7.0
  MIME-Version: 1.0
  Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8; format=flowed
  Content-Language: en-US
  Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

My charset setting only changes from us-ascii to utf-8 when I type (or
quote) a non-ascii character in a posting. Yours is set to utf-8 and
yet I see no non-ascii characters in the posting.
