It's rude indeed, but see his "apology" mail on Sat, 29 Aug 2020 14:52:36 +0200. He has a personality disorder, which makes him behave weirdly from time to time. IMO it's better to ignore this when it happens.

Sorry, I'm not prepared to ignore people who publicly smear the names of others with profanities. Those people should be prepared to have their names publicly smeared as well.

That's correct only if you assume that everyone behaves in a rational way. There are people with psychological disabilities, who sometimes do not behave rationally. One particularly impressive disability is for example Tourette's syndrome.[1] The best thing you can do is to not take what they do and say seriously/literally, IOW, to take what they do and say with many grains of salt. Of course all this is more difficult to perceive with people who behave irrationally only at times, and is also more difficult to perceive on a mailing list.
