Be ready for this response, if you send any Microsoft generated

I'm sorry, you sent me an attachment in a format that I refuse to use. I
refuse to accept Microsoft Word documents or Microsoft Excel or Microsoft
Powerpoint documents, because using proprietary formats is a bad idea and is

In the highly unlikely event that your document cannot be
converted to an open, non-proprietary format, consider posting it
on a web page, and sending an e-mail with the URL which points to
the file. In any case, we will not access, or download, or open
files which are in a proprietary, blackbox, format (read

You may even be blacklisted and blocked, if you insist on
repeating this offense. Consider yourself adequately warned.
