"Show original" apparently doesn't work as well as it might in Gmail.
Here's your previous message, with shortened headers:

To UNSUBSCRIBE, email to debian-user-REQUEST@lists.debian.org 
with a subject of "unsubscribe". Trouble? Contact listmaster@lists.debian.org

====[end_quote]=======================================================

As you see, the signature is added by the list software at the end of
the message instead of at the end of each part of the message. It's
therefore omitted when viewing the message in some mail clients. Bug
or feature?

In any case, the instructions for unsubscribing are visible in a
majority of posts' bodies, all posts' headers, and the email everybody
received when subscribing, so I don't really understand why it's a
problem.
