Hi Vincent,

Thanks for pointing this out. We are using a plug-in to send notification of blog posts to the mailing list. I believe the primary goal is to let people know that the blog post exists, rather than try to capture the full content of the blog post.

I (personally) do not know to what extent we can configure the plug-in to handle iframes reliably.
