Yes, the person:

- is using a pseudonym
- is posting from a Yahoo! Mail account
- is connecting to Yahoo! Mail using a tor anonymizing proxy
- is linking to obviously inflammatory content and posting generally
  ridiculous ideas.

They have been banned from further posting to this mailing list. 
Unfortunately, people are all too willing to reply to trolls, which is why
these are the longest threads on this list in months (and why trolling
exists as a phenomenon).

The original mails were cross-posted to multiple lists; but Bruce Byfield at
least seems to follow this list, I just don't see why he thought this was
worth writing an article about.
