Of course not, I didn't say it did.

This is irrelevant though. People should always be encouraged to do
things the right way, and cross-posting the same Off-Topic question to
multiple support lists - especially high volume lists like the postfix
(and sometimes the dovecot) list(s) is not a very nice thing to do -
some would call it lazy and/or arrogant.

You haven't thought things through. The need is to prevent thread
participants from confusing who said what when multiple people are
participating - which is precisely what happened here (I confused you
with the OP).
