HTML formatted posts will now bounce

We've set up the list now so that posts which are formatted in HTML will
bounce (to me).

I'll forward the first couple bounces for each subscriber, but after that
return them to sender for reposting in Plain Text.

There are numerous posts in the marxism archives on how to do Plain Text,
and i am more than happy to explain it once more to each person if need be.

To repeat the reasons for this move: it reduces the amount of data
transfered through the list by half for each post sent in HTML format, and
so a.) reduces expenses for Lou and b.)  makes downloading the email from
servers more pleasant for those people in locations where modem connection
is very slow.
