FWIW, here are the posts by the two accounts.  There's no sign of
forgery in the headers; the yahoo mails really do appear to be sent by
someone logged into the algodor account, while the gmail ones are from
someone logged into the frantisekapfelbeck account.  This distinguishes
them from the poorly forged justinsfca posts from a while back.

In any case, we do appear to have a griefer (or two) on our hands.
