It looks like Warin tried to send it to "80hnhtv4agou---" without 
noticing that address is a spoofed┬╣ tagging at OSM. (The reply-to: address 
should have been used instead.) That's an understandable oversight that 
I might have made myself :-). (OTOH, it might mean Warin's mail client 
doesn't honor reply-to...)

(┬╣ Mind, spoofing 'from' as "so-and-so via LIST <list at example.com>" is a 
pretty common practice that should not be taken as malicious. In fact, 
for how often I see it, I wouldn't be surprised if it is default 
behavior in some mail clients.)

Yup. talk at OSM, maybe, but really at this point it's just someone ranting 
inappropriately.
