There may be all sorts of reasons.  I have no control of what people
type when they send me a message.  One case may be that someone hits
TAB in their editor by accident.  Most editors don't show trailing
whitespace, so it's easy to overlook.

Another possibility is that they try to send me a file for my spread
sheet with TAB separated values.  If the last value on a line is
empty, a TAB may become the last character on that line.
