Default unreadable messages (was: High School Curriculum)


No, the cross-posting to comp.lang.logo is still being done the same
way. I just re-direct the messages from the LogoForum to the server at
MIT that posts the messages to comp.lang.logo. I haven't noticed any
problems reading messages on comp.lang.logo with my news reader. When
did this problem start to happen? How does this message appear?

Your message looks fine. Some messages give a header like this example (it's
the last line that's important):

Hi Jerry,
Thanks for the pointer to Children Designers.

In this case the message body was okay (except that "richtext" doesn't do "more"
filtering, so it all zooms off the screen before I can read it) and it's only the
stuff at the end that has those underscores between characters, but sometimes the
entire message body looks like that.

The basic problem, I think, is that the text of the message is an attachment,
rather than just part of the main message text. Some news editor is using
attachments, and shouldn't. (It's one thing when someone deliberately attaches
a gif, or something like that -- I can just skip those. But here it's the
entire message that's attached.)
