Dear Large Financial Services Company

Dear Large Financial Services Company:

If you are going to send me notification email messages, with

Content-Type: text/plain

then please actually make the message be plain text, not HTML crud.

Or send a MIME version with one in text form and one in HTML.

Really, this is 1998 technology we're talking about here.

And while we're on the topic, please let me have a password that has non-alphanumeric characters in it.

Also, could they not destroy the world economy? That would also be nifty.

Yes, that would be nice.

(Although, to be fair, this particular Financial Services Company bears little responsibility -- relatively -- for the meltdown.)
