	Due to a recent server rebuild and resurrection of this email address,
I've been rediscovering mailing lists that I had completely forgotten I
was subscribed to.  This is one.

Imagine my amusement at receiving an email from someone called Houston
Navarro appearing to leap to the defense of one Gregory Kohs.  I'm not
sure what the alleged ban was about, but being a Wikimedia list I can
guess.  No, I really can't be bothered reading back through the archives
to see what Mr. Kohs did or didn't do.

Anyway, the interesting part of the defensive email (some crap survey
link) is the headers, of which these bits are the interesting ones:

Surprise, surprise ... Houston Navarro is Gregory Kohs.

I've kill-filed both his addresses.
