It is the case that the default reason shown in the admindb page or
whatever you put there if you change it is included as part of the
rejection message.

What is in Mailman's vette log for these rejects? If it doesn't show
the reason that was in the admindb page, it may be a manifestion of
the issue of the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/ioA9>.

If the reason is in the rejection message in the vette log but was not
in the rejection message sent to the user, you may have an edited
version of the refuse.txt template that applies to the list(s) and is
missing the %(reason)s replacement.
