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.
