While the first assumption (ending at the third "and") is true IMHO, the
second one is (IMHO) only partially correct because it omits the fact users
haven't been instructed on the etiquette and requirements regarding the
formatting of email being sent to this list ("please provide command line
and full uncut console output", answer in context below the specific
statement you are referring to, shorten previously sent/received text to
maintain context but remove "clutter" and footer), which could (and should)
be addressed by providing these respective instructions (preferably more
detailed) on the mailman/listinfo page(s) -- that way in case of flaws
there is somewhere to point people to, even if they have used a different
"entrance" (advisory link could be placed in the footer).
This will most certainly not make the annoyance go away entirely, but it
might reduce the count quite a bit, wouldn't it?

Best regards,
