If the sender of the 'help' command is a list member, reference to the
member's options page is added by Mailman/Commands/cmd_help.py via the
following code:

    for sender in  msg.get_senders():
        if mlist.isMember(sender):
            memberurl = mlist.GetOptionsURL(sender, absolute=1)
            urlhelp = _(
                'You can access your personal options via the following
            # Get a blank line in the output.

You could remove that code, comment it out or replace

        if mlist.isMember(sender):


        if False:
