So, why do these folks post attachments? Why is this even permitted? I
would love to hear what these people have to say, but i cannot break my
own rule to find out.

Fine. I'll answer for them. It's called PGP. You might try looking it up some time. They are PGP-signing their posts, and the sig comes across as an attachment.

Here - I'll copy Valdis' sig from his most recent post:

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----
Version: GnuPG v1.2.4 (GNU/Linux)
Comment: Exmh version 2.5 07/13/2001

-----END PGP SIGNATURE-----

You might try using an MUA that actually understands this stuff.
