HTML mail clarification

To clarify:

My reason for considering filtering all HTML email to the trash is not so much my distaste for the format (though that is a factor) but because, at least for the email I receive, only spammers send HTML email.

And I hate spam.

So I have to weigh the choice. Nuke a ton of spam with one filter, knowing that I’ll probably miss a few legitimate messages, or keep creating more specific spam filters.

I’m really tired of creating spam filters.
