If you elect to filter this person's traffic, and are concerned that
you'll continue to be inundated with replies, I'd like to suggest a
small procmail script I wrote years ago.

        http://www.it.ca/~paul/s/procmail-filter-msgid

It caches the message-id of the troll's posts and filters the message
(redirect or bitbucket).  It then caches the message-id of any message
that includes a cached message-id in its headers (i.e. In-Reply-To,
Refererences) and filters that too.  The effect is to hide not just the
troll's mail, but all the conversations he starts.

I haven't actively used this thing since 2003, but procmail hasn't
changed much in that time either.  Hope it helps.

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

One thought however.  If I'd already filtered this thread, I would have
missed helpful tips like yours.  I guess that's the price that has to be
paid.
