This sounds similar to a curiousity I've see twice lately for one 
subscriber.  My first thought was that she's a hotmail user
The 2 messages she's posted lately result in a message
to me:

Date: Sat, 23 Apr 2005 20:43:21 -0700
From: mailman-bounces at cohousing.org
To: cohousing-l-owner at cohousing.org
Subject: Content filtered message notification

The attached message matched the cohousing-l mailing list's content
filtering rules and was prevented from being forwarded on to the list
membership.  You are receiving the only remaining copy of the
discarded message.

From: alberta  <alberta...  at hotmail.com> (manually obsucured by Fred)
<<filtered message deleted before posting to  mm-users>>

I double checked
Check Privacy options...->Spam filters->header_filter_rules 
Nothing set/action: Defer  (The Legacy anti-spam filters is set tot the 
default: to: friend at public.com     etc. )

I've had a few "Content filtered message notification" 's before but this 
is the first time two from the same person / an apparent pattern.

I think my ISP is running MM Ver 2.15

Fred,  who subscribes to Mailman-users in no mail mode - diretct reply to 
       me on this appreciated.

PS FYI I do not have shell access to MM.  I've developed a way to use the
non-interactive Unix web client - wget - to fetch all subscriber info
(real names, options) and list configuration info and process it into a
couple of reasonable size text files. I use it monthly.
