I would also use "lynx" rather than "links" or "w3m" because that's the
one I got used to in the 1990's, and the other two I've never been able
to learn. Getting old while I'm still young really sucks.

Also, I'd like to point out that Adrien's original e-mail was sent in
HTML, but the URL's he put in it were not marked up as links at all,
just text. That makes this entire thread just so much fail on so many
levels, from Adrien's original message on, inclusive. At this point, if
I were Rick, I'd set up an autoresponder that replies off-list to any
message that actually gets through to the list in HTML with a canned
response reminding one to please turn off the HTML next time.
