Thanks Scott for tipping me off about the bogus adder2adder.com.au person who was making baseless allegations about me on one of the KS Lists.
For everyone else, here's the full message.

Acanthophis woolfi, in sort, distingushed by the relative lack of white on the supralabials. Its funny how the holotype and paratype don't fit this description. Did you ever see them? Perhaps a bit of armchair taxonomy! Best make a trip to the museum in future.
: Getting used to it here, what with wankers from Wales claiming expertise on Aussie snakes he's never seen, we are getting used to the armchair experts here.
: At least you admit to failings in knowledge, some of these others don't!
: ALL THE BEST
: HAPPY HERPING

which was then followed by another spam post from WW himself continuing the baseless attack on myself.
So I did a quick check on the Wois database for the mystery person at:
adder@adder.com.au which we all know is a non-existant person and domain.
We came up with:

END OF RESULT
WHICH looks like our mate WW has now taken to posting his attacks on me under multiple names.
It seems that this obsessive compulsive behaviour by WW has gone beyond mere commentary on herp taxonomy and gone into the realms of neurotic personality disorder behaviour on his part.
As it may be argued that I am in part contributing to Wuster's strange and obsessive posting, I'll take leave from KS for a few weeks.
ALL THE BEST to the unwitting people who came here for reasoned taxonomic discussions and had to put up with some of inane stuff over the last few weeks.
