On the contrary, good lady.  Majordomo, and most other mail list software, has lists of words and phrases that can be taken as commands.  If these are found out of context in an email, or if they come from someone without administrator authority, the software automatically kicks the message out to be resubmitted or to be manually okay'd by the list administrator.  I believe this is most likely what happened with your message.  I can't believe that anyone would be offended by one of our own trying to make it easier to communicate with her.

Technology is a wonderful thing, but often gives us strange and sometimes unpleasant surprises.
