In this case, the problem is a visceral hatred by some persons on
ro:wp of anything even slightly Cyrillic. The Cyrillic letter was even
missing from the ro:wp puzzle globe for a time. (I see it's present in
the current version.)

So treating this as in any way merely a technical problem will not
resolve the cause of these regular messages. I see the messager has
resorted to spamming multiple lists now.

Possibly putting it at the bottom of the *long* list of other problems
in need of resolution (e.g. all the volunteer work that's backed up a
year or more, as Simetrical noted on wikitech-l) would be an idea.
Because everything else is more urgent and indeed more important than
one annoying nationalist spammer.
