Your mail server has added the domain in order to create a complete
mailing address.  If you had been reading this posting from a
Newsserver instead of by mail, like you can see with all original
headers at
<URL:http://groups.google.de/group/gnu.misc.discuss/msg/e68e7d970b543ef2>,
you'd not have seen your domain added.

Again: in this respect you are mistaken about the original poster, and
it might be smart to stop this before you are giving him ideas.

His choice of a fake mail domain _is_, by the way, idiotic, but it
does not single you out.  He should pick something ending in
".invalid" if he is really out to have an invalid address.
