That was almost certainly deliberate.  It's not appropriate to place  
a period or comma inside the quotation marks when one didn't occur in  
the quoted phrase.  Your teachers and textbooks may have instructed  
otherwise, but haven't they been wrong before?

By the way, ALL of you top-posted, and the meta-grammar-Nazis among  
you failed to cull useless cruft (to wit, the mailing list footer)  
from the messages you quoted.
