Now, that's pretty rude.  Basic netiquette says keep line lengths under 80.
If your user agent wants reflowable text, there's a perfectly good way for it
to achieve that with other compatible user agents while not emitting lines
longer than 80: it can mark the text as format=flowed.

If your MUA can't or won't mark text it wants reflowed on the other end as
format=flowed, please use an appropriate filter to make up for its
shortcomings before posting to public lists.
