For what it's worth, I've seen folks like him before. They have zillions of

accounts because they are always posting things that get them in trouble

with their ISPs, and are being unsubbed or blocked, but want to retain

access through alternate channels. They also tend to forge their headers so

you don't know where they are posting from, unless you really know all the

technical ins and outs of e-mail. On another list I'm on, there's a guy with

at least six diferent addresses/accounts at any given time, maybe more. When

they unsub one address, he uses or obtains another.

All this to say that the address through which he's getting ADS messages may

or may not have anything at all to do with the address from which he SEEMS

(note emphatic caps) to have posted to the list.
