   On blah date, <someone@someplace.dom> wrote:


   I reported blah problem to someone@someplace.dom

gets picked up by spambots from our list archive and gets circulated in
spam lists.  It would really help if we instead posted:

   On blah date, Firstname Lastname wrote:


   I reported blah problem to someone at someplace.dom
