Agreed up to here.

In which case they should be called on it. Thinking a guideline (there
are few if any "rules" here and no "regulations" I know of) is silly is
a reason to propose an alternative, not simply to ignore it.

Top-posting, posting in HTML, quoting entire digests (and not editing
quotes, which I admit most of us are guilty of from time to time) are
real impediments. It's reasonable to draw attention to the guidelines
when the poster clearly hasn't noticed them or has decided they don't
apply to him.
