There is such a header added by mailman.  In your email, for example,
I find this:

        Philadelphia Linux User's Group Discussion List <>

This has been discussed many a time on the list, which is not a
reprimand but a suggestion that a new discussion is not necessarily a
worthwhile use of anyone's time.  There are strong opinions on each
side, but it's generally been felt here that the occasional private
post to the list is outweighed by the benefits of replies not
accidentally going only to the asker of a question.
