Your email did not include a correct References: or In-Reply-To:
header.  Also, you erroneously spelled the "Organization:" header as
"Organisation:"; note that the latter spelling is not present in the
list of IANA-defined Permanent Message Headers[1].



I am inclined to agree that the launchpad messages are annoying, but
come on ... let's discuss them based on their usefulness, not header
lawyering.  :-P
