It's obvious to me the entire login was created just for anonymous
vandalism; why not just block it permanently with a note inviting the
user to contact you under his/her *real* login?

I see no good reason to have a username "Delete Mine And I Delete
Yours". I think it goes against the spirit of OSM as being overly
confrontational on its face.
