The problem is that the mail client Anthony is using (Microsoft Outlook 
14.0) is a broken piece of junk that a) is configured to send HTML 
replies to the list (which means they are semi-readable to people who 
are viewing the messages in HTML format--but not at all reply-able 
without manually fixing all the quoting and attributions) and b) sends 
garbage for the plain-text version of the message.

So, Anthony, it would be great if you would configure your Outlook to 
send messages to /this/ list as plain text rather than sending a 
multipart/mixed reply (meaning tell it not to send HTML to the 
mythtv.org domain so we get messages without the broken HTML MS 
Obfuscator uses).  Note that most e-mail clients (Outlook included, 
TTBOMK) allow you to configure "plain-text domains" somewhere in their 
settings, so this can be done automatically for you by Outlook without 
affecting e-mails you send to other people.
