Very interesting.  So it's the MUA doing it not the backend.  OK, (last 
follow-up for now ;-)), what would it take to have Mailman strip lines 
that begin with special characters.  For instance, if I change my 
footers on the "top posters" lists to something like this:

     ++ -----------------------------
     ++ Top Posters mailing list at lusers.tld
     ++ http://lusers.tld/mailman/listinfo/top-posters
     ++ FAQ: (not needed since they won't read it)
     ++ Search http://.......

could Mailman be modified/configure to remove all "footer" messages that 
begin with "++ "?   I know of the possibilities for things to go bad 
when editing the body, but it just seems like a good oppty to auto clean 
up messages that others don't.
