I did not catch whether or not you reported this individual to the lead
on the Mint project.  Every group; country, religion, OS, etc., has its
nuts and wackos.  Avi's email suggested the possibility that they may
not be aware of the situation.  We are all in the Ubuntu/Linux promotion
game, even Mint, so give them a chance to rectify the situation.
