That message is because the WebAIM-Forum sends the email on behalf of somebody else; Joseph Krack in this case. It didn't come directly from Joseph. It came from WebAIM.

Your email service provider has a rule to look for this and warn you. This sort of thing has its legitimate uses, like here on WebAIM. It can also be abused (what can't!?). Thus the warning.
