As someone who manages a lot of mailing lists, I can tell you that MANY
people sign up for a list under one address, and then proceed to post
from another. Sometimes it's a mistake, but mostly it's just
carelessness. A long time ago I would follow up with the person and
remind them that they were subscribed under a different address, but
life is way too short; I usually just add that address to the exception
list of people who aren't subscribed but can post.
I don't run -discuss, but I can see that happening ...
Take a look at the headers for a message on -discuss and see what
address it was delivered to.
Look for something like this:
