Yeah, maybe that's part of the problem but, as you said, the solution
should be simple: he leaves the mailing list
or, if that's not possible, the admins "make him leave".

On top, with his ramblings and often totally wrong assertions (the
"April's fool link"-gate scandal has been absolutely
hilarious, almost as the subsequent attempt to regain some
credibility, yeah .. nice try) he has now managed to scare
the hell out of me the next time I'll be tied to a medical device: the
mere chance he may be behind it now makes me
extremely nervous. Even if it's only a blood pressure monitor.

Losing valuable people in the mailing list and, at some point, the
mailing list at all is like throwing away a Ferrari
because a pidgeon keeps shitting on it. I'd argue that getting rid of
the pidgeon is a more sensible solution.
