PN in Usenet address

When you post an article on Usenet you usually show a fake address keeping your anonymity such as nobody@nowhere.net. If you want to give your address you can use some tricks aiming at avoiding spam, usually in your signature and not in the header. I find annoying that PN automatically add their website in your address that is showed this way in the header of your article :

From:
blackcat <hello@anywhere.net> (Customer of PlusNet plc (http://www.plus.net))

Personally it's not for anonymity that I use a munged from: address, but just to minimise spam/ube... so as long as it just shows the ISP address and not mine, I wouldn't really be worried.

I think that's your usenet agent doing that...

AFAIK PlusNet add an "Organization" header to messages, but they don't do anything to the From Address.
