They do just that -- only slightly, but still munging. They convert the
"--\n" to "-- --\n" (or something like that) so that dimming code isn't
triggered, but is still semi-recognizable to the user as a signature.
This is from memory -- if you want the actual codes I can find out.

I don't get any MIME digests, so I can't say. Text versions most definately
suffer this, and that is what I receive most (I've just gotten used to reading
the grey text).

"TAD (Technology Attachment Disorder) is an unshakable, impractical devotion
to a brand, platform, product line, or programming language. It's relatively
harmless among the rank and file, but when management is afflicted the damage
can be measured in dollars. It's also contagious -- someone with sufficient
political clout can infect an entire organization."
