Where has the practice of sending screen shots as source code come from?

Maybe, but that isn't code.

No. The syntax highlighting comes from the code, so I should be able
to paste your code into my editor and see it in colour. No benefit to
seeing it in YOUR colours, which may not be helpful to me.

I find that hard to believe... you're saying it's actually easier to
screenshot a text editor than to copy and paste?
