I don't use such an app, and neither do I have an inventory of which apps do
do this. Those that do it I'm sure either do it intentionally and/or aren't
apps that a user could report a bug against (e.g. web mail). I was merely
pointing out that not every apparent dummy that seems to have forgotten where
his instructions for undoing his subscription, if or whether he has any such
thing, or even if he is getting mail because he created a subscription in the
first place, can be assumed to have not read the footer's instructions
"-- " is the begin of a signature and the intention of this
is *not* include footers
and signatures in replies *but not* to supress it completly and it's done this way
case of footers because most people are too dumb for strip quotes in their replies
List admin intent cannot control the apps its subscribers use.
