Is it possible to compose a plain text email in Google Groups?

Clicking on the "New topic" button opens a rich text editor, and I see no option to switch to plain text.

By default , it is just plain text, until you change certain formatting options. (or paste in something with rich content, with ctrl+V rather than ctrl+shift+V)

As an owner of a group, you could remove the rich formatting permission from selected members.
