Okay, upon further testing, the problem only seems to occur when
replying from my Hotmail account. Gmail does not render the contact
info in text... it does still put the unsightly OP bot address at
the bottom of the post, however.

You bring up a good point, and I'm not really sure what to do about it.
Every email client (gmail, outlook, thunderbird, etc) treats replies
differently and adds its own spice to the mix. The only thing we can be
reasonably sure to look for is the "reply above this line". We can be
(almost) 100% sure that everything below that is not part of the reply.
There's no easy way to determine what part above it is actually a legitimate
reply, and what is metadata added by the client.
We are hoping to get a little bit of data into the system and then see if
there are any common patterns we can look for. Notes like this really help,
as we would like to know what all the possible issues are, even if we can't
(Note: Even this support ticket app works similarly. See the bottom of this
reply. It has the "On date X, so-and-so..." reply portion that gmail adds to
