Seems this did not get to the MetList because I sent it in non-text format.
It was Paul Harvey who did "The rest of the story". And the information you supplied is only part of the rest of the story. The foundation is here:
That is the IP address from which the Proud Tom comment was posted to the MPOD and the above link details all comments that have come from that IP address.
Below is the Who Is Internet-info link for that IP, that is to say, the ISP for the sender:
which is located in Romeoville, IL, home of Bob Evans.
As someone pointed out earlier, this is not definitive proof. One would need the MAC address of the actual computer that sent the email and know who the computer belonged to. The former is sometimes available, the latter is not.
Even with both of those data there is no way of telling if Mr. Evans was using PT as a joke or because he is PT. So, all we are left with is a smoking gun.
PT was before my time on the MetList but I can say with certainty that Zorro (aka, Captain Blood) cannot possibly be Proud Tom because he does not write well enough.
Send some pictures, please :)
