I have no idea what that abbreviation refers to,

NISM = "Need I Say More"


but the (obvious) spam (simply by looking at the list of recipients)
-=-

this is true. because it was sent to a 'tsl' also.


viewing "source", "header" can be read, but not able to read "body"
because of 'base64'.


to view "body", opened as 'email'. saw link. thought. what the heck.
possible a subscriber messed up. wondered what. clicked link.

using firefox and NoScript, running firewall, rkhunter,
backed up. why not.

firefox displayed a "404". i broke link.


you replied to was not received as base64 encoded, here.
-=-

that is because it has enigmail sig. note "source" of this post.


Nor should it really be a problem. Only the most ancient or
dysfunctional mail clients would not be able to handle base64 encoded
messages.
-=-

what email client in 'view source' mode, show "body" as readable
ascii when email is 'base64'.


And, I dare say, the same derision should be applicable to
anything else that *handles* mail for you.
-=-

deride depends on answer to above question. ;)
