I think the community has a right to defend themselves against trolls. 
If it's just bad naming, we can probably just laugh it off; but when a 
failed joke spans a half dozen module and just opens a browser to his 
website, there is no value for it to stay at PyPI. Additionally, it may 
fuel copycats: (do anyone 
have any idea who submitted that one?)
