About the "Face" field in message headers. (No, not X-Face)

    Thunderbird users with the MessageFaces plugin enabled can render
    colour "Face" icons. Mesnews users can display them, too. (Damn good
    newsreader that, and yet it is made in France :-/ ). Anyway, out with
    X-Face, in with Face.

    Messages in non-binary USENET groups are not supposed to have binary
    attachments.

    IIRC they are hex strings in the header.

    Since you regard data in the X-Face and Face header fields as binary
    attachments, then where on this forum have previously whined about
    them?
    Did you not know of their existence until now?

    So putting the extra junk for the newsreader to pull down at the start of
    the message is supposed to make it better?

    It's less of a bandwidth overhead than bothering to read your posts. ;-)
