Yes, these headers look like something that mailman would hold by
default. It is something that mailman *should* block. Including the
mailing list in a field other than To/Cc (or, as another example,
along with some number of other emails) suggests that the email likely
was sent to the mailing list by accident.
Obviously, that was not the case for this email. Thus the need for a
hopefully-existing moderator to step in and override the normally
helpful heuristics… ;-)
Look out for missing or extraneous apostrophes!
