The Ecartis mailing list software does not filter the originating
email address in any way ... unless that address is not currently a
member of the list. I will confirm that the behaviour that you are
seeing is definitely on the client (or mail service) side of things.

Depending on the client sending the email (and the subsequent message
encoding) the list software will either strip the duplicate [NTLK]
from the subject prior to sending it to the list, or it will stay
where it is. The only bracketed prefix that should be added to message
subjects are things such as: [OT], [ANN], [FS], etc.
