Just because it was challenged before does not mean it was, or is, right / courteous / respectful .

I wasn't a moderator then, and the other moderators for this list (there are three or four of us) are more tolerant.

I agree. I think I even wrote to the moderators about the RUE a couple times.

Not on the Python List he isn't*. The moderators have no control over the usenet portion, so if that's where you get
your posts from then you'll still see him.
And as a general bulletin: If you have an issue you want the moderators to know about, the email address to use is
python-list at python.org
with a "-owner" after the "python-list" part.
*At least, I haven't seen the RUE lately -- let us know if he's back at it.
