Half of the lists I subscribe to* don't have this. The other half does.

It seems technical (for developers etc) lists do not have it, while
more layman type of lists have it. But there are also exceptions.

* about 20 mail lists

About HTML and other bans:
This is usually not a choice of the user. Punishing them for other
peoples sins is not necessarily a good thing.

Automatically stripping HTML tags on the other hand might work.
