LazyApproval reply (ApproverComments) without original task message being included?

By submitting a form questions are asked. In the workflow those questions are answered through a Revision Task for which I activated LazyApproval.


I have always found it quite logical that Outlook signatures, no matter how long these might be, get included in the registered reply. However, now I found that the orginal task message is also included.


Things get really messy when I then write the ApproverComments to the list column - in this case: "Antwoord":


LazyApproval reply

In the task message all form fields are included so I even truncated this example!


How can I prevent this from happening?


I thought about trimming the answer from the Signature on, in this case everything below "Met vriendelijke groet," but different colleagues will use different signatures. Compare "With kind regards" to just "Regards" etcetera.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!
