How was I supposed to know that?  As I said, I haven't the ability
configured even to read HTML email, and I generally don't bother to try
and read the source.  Had it been an actual idiot user who can't use a
proper subject message and has a silly HTML-only configuration, my reply
was important educational material which was not overly condescending.

However, it was spam, as you noted.  The reply bounced, and maybe someone
else reading the list who has not yet configured their mail system sanely
saw my message and did so.  Wasted effort on my part?  Probably, but maybe

Someone needs to tweak spamassasin to be just a little more paranoid about
marking, if it is still even running on the lists - I've not seen anything
marked spam in the past week and a half's mail, which I read just
yesterday after getting out of the hospital.  Ugh.

Also, one minor nitpick about spamassasin marking list mail,
*****SPAM***** is a little annoying, can it be *SPAM* or [SPAM] or so?
