I agree.  I was shocked and offended by the message, but
1)  It was obviously posted by mistake.
2)  The writer apologized promptly.
3)  The writer has frequently posted "on-topic" with helpful, 
interesting, or entertaining posts in the past - he is obviously not 
just a "troll".

I've seen similar stuff on a professional mailing list, and while folks 
at my office keep an informal "do not hire" list of people whose posts 
are particularly inappropriate or unsavory, it takes considerably more 
than one misdirected post to get banned.  This seems right.
