I know what you mean!  Despite my whining, people still send me
Microsoft Word Files.  I keep telling them "Hey, I've got this cool
Linux utility called strings and it lets me see things you have deleted
in your Word files. Things like 'This is a bank robbery. I have a gub'".

Just today, a potential client sent me a contract to sign for a $$$
project, but the contract was created with Microsoft Word.  I responded
"No way will I accept your tainted money, be gone!!!"
