I would say a polite, "sorry you have been inconvenienced, it is a  
public archive and therefore we have a responsibility to the public to  
keep the archive intact as it is."  As far as I know, we haven't  
removed things or changed things in the archive (even to fix links  
like pure-data.org).  We shouldn't start now for this lame excuse.

In the US, he would have zero grounds to sue, but could file a suit.   
But filing a suit is a lot of work to do, so it rarely happens.
