I do not see why I should have to fiddle around with my mailer to add
an ever-increasing list of bizarre apparent cahracter sets. these
messages flagged as eg "big5" are actually in perfectly ordinary ascii
as far as I can see. Surely this is the reponsibility of the mail
sender? Messages to public bulletin boards should be in plain text 

As far as I'm concerned unreadable messages won't get read
