I am not aware of how to change the way that the stuff at the bottom is
added to posts.

I looked through all the configuration options and was surprised to not find
any control over what text gets attached to messages.

I would be willing to do this if I could control the footer text.

This is controversial.   I manage lots of lists which force to reply-to
back to the list and I get lots of complaints.  Here, by happenstance, I
do it the other way and also get complaints.  I am not inclined to change
this (either way) for now as it isn't clear it would be progress.
