Of course you can. But my feeling is that you already *did* suggest this,
many and many times.

I interpret your post as one more lengthy repetition of your well-known
opinion: differences between "plain text" and "rich text" should not exist:
they should be eliminated by incorporating the mark-up in the encoding.

I think that it is your right to repeat your opinions as many times as you
want. Nevertheless, I find that repeating opinions which are already
well-known to everybody is *useless* and *boring*.
