Igor is not a spammer, but his account has likely been compromised or spoofed.

Messages to the mailing list do not get filtered through any spam-blocking software prior to posting, so the occasional inappropriate message will get through if it comes from a valid, subscribed address.

As mentioned in my previous post, I have placed Igor's address in moderation mode for now. This will prevent additional messages from getting posted the list. I have also contacted him directly regarding this issue. If I keep seeing spam coming from his address, I will block it permanently.
