That is one explanation. But this may not be sufficient. discuss at kwartzlab.ca has the same error in its headers, but it has something that does not look like garbage for its txt record: 

[08:29 PM]sdf(~)$ dig txt kwartzlab.ca

; <<>> DiG 9.9.5 <<>> txt kwartzlab.ca

;kwartzlab.ca.                  IN      TXT

kwartzlab.CA.           362     IN      TXT     "v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4: +include:ccjclearline.com ~all"

Mind you, I am not a maker and mostly lurk on the kwartzlab lists, so I do not know whether it is affected by the same problem. thinkers.org has yet a different TXT record.

Nonetheless I will send a message to ... somebody? ... and see whether we can get the .txt record fixed. (The people who will do the fixing may be on this mailing list, but I will not assume that.)
