What's a "QP" message?

Interestingly, the MailScanner footer is preceeded by dash dash space and doesn't appear in the reply.  You're signature just has dashes but I presume it originally had a space following.  So where is that getting stripped?  Do email clients parse from the bottom up until they see the last instance of dash dash space and then change any others to just dual dashes?

I'm reading the list with Outlook 2003.  Not sure what happens in other clients...
