Is the moderator editing the post in some way? It seems perhaps the
moderator is somehow editing the post, perhaps using one of the
techniques in
and is not separating the body of the edited messages fron the headers
by at least one empty line. Note that an empty line is different from
a blank line in that an empty line contains no characters while a
blank line may contain spaces, tabs or other whitespace characters.

If the body is not separated from the headers by an empty line, the
first portion of the body up to the first empty line in the body will
be considered part of the headers.
