I'm okay with UTF-8 messages, but stuff like this annoys me. I usually
read my messages in Mutt on the Linux console, which means I'm limited
to a 512 character, single-width font. Normal UTF-8 messages, I can
get the English part of the message fine, and if I care about the rest
of the message, I'll open up a Unicode xterm. But this uses non-ASCII
characters to replace perfectly good ASCII characters, gratitiously
obfusicating the message.

May all of our annoyances be as trivial.
