Bluntly, because MUAs are designed to accept arbitrary data from random
strangers on the internet and display it to you without question. They
prioritise Getting It Done over Doing It Right, and it's hard to fight
against a baked-in paradigm.

It's like the old proverb about the tourist asking for directions in
Ireland and being told "If I was you, I wouldn't start from here" :-D
