Thanks for source with headers. I don't see anything useful, though, I
do see that "In-Reply-To: <5b182b2c.1c69fb81.390f6.f0ea at mx.google.com>"
is correct, so the sender is probably subscribed to the list. Getting
that right from messages in the online archives would be nontrivial.

But damn: "I joined this site so that i could weed through the guys who
aren’t serious and reliable enough to invite to my house where i feel
comfortable." Trolling the tor-relays list for nice guys to date? That
is bizarre.
