Oy :-).  Either one of you could simply start ignoring the ad hominem
portion of the other's mail at any time, and the list would be better
off for it.

This list does really good analysis.  It also has a small number of
people who have a tendency to amplify and draw attention to ad hominem
comments rather than defuse them.  I can only beg that those people
consider other tactics for dealing with such comments.
