I'm sure there are members of the AMS that like to indulge in a bit of trolling now and then. It's a relatively large society, after all. (One hopes their trolls are more sophisticated than just ineptly impersonating Arturo, to be sure.) But one needn't be a member of the AMS to put a AMS e-mail address in the From: line.
