Yes, he did indeed write to me, with the following:

I replied saying I didn't understand what he was talking about and that
I hadn't given his personal information out to anyone.
Then I got this gem of a response:

Since I don't appreciate people "demanding" things of me and quoting
"national laws" that probably don't exist, I basically told him to fix
his shitty attitude and go away (after another similarly-annoying
clueless re-reply). I can paste more, but there's really no need.
Sigh. If someone else has infinite patience and a desire to waste their
own time, feel free to "help" this guy off-list.
