All newsreaders should consider it wrong, cause it is, well, wrong. :-)

Back to the problem: Normally, emacs should not do that, so I guess
that's something you (or your sysadmin) configured.  Something like:

  (add-hook 'before-save-hook 'delete-trailing-whitespace)

So grep your ~/.emacs and the files in the site-lisp directory for
`delete-trailing-whitespace'.

Bye,
