Yep, complaining about being removed was justified and that's what Simon and 
I (and Alexandre agreeing) did. Jorge wrote his mail after his name had 
already been readded with the only purpose of trolling ("I am glad to see 
there is some decency left in Haiku").

it == name. Given that the commit message was phrased exactly like the second 
part of the sentence in my previous mail, I wouldn't assume any subtext here.

Half a year ago he allowed banning his email address (literally). He might 
have changed is mind now, but that doesn't mean that we have to, too.

I basically agree. I'd still continue to NOPOST his mail addresses to at 
least raise the hurdle.
