My first impression is that it is neither of these people.  The original
mikeeusa crapflood was coming from IP addresses in upstate NY/Canada,
registered to optonline.  This batch is (when not using tor) coming
from addresses in Atlanta, Georgia, apparently.  This trip on the
loser-rant-mobile also has a different writing style than either of
the others.

It seems to me debian-women has found another impotent, friendless loser
who can't find better things to do with his time.  My suggestion is just
to do the same as we did for mikeeusa, and block the addresses we know
about, advise yahoo someone is using their machiens for hate mail, and
watch him go away after a while.  For the ones that sneak through the
lists, well, that's why procmail exists.

I have already contacted abuse@, FWIW, but I don't expect to hear
anything back - I never did with mikeeusa at any rate, although he seems
to have lost that address.

Take care,
