I can understand the need to stop the bomb threats, but the FBI also should have respected the other users of the seized server and not removed it. And besides, nothing is stoping the person from using other anonymous email hosts.

This seizure is especially chilling because Riseup is used primarily by activists.

I agree and whom ever is doing this is motivated to keep doing it. Initially the bomb threats started in bathroom stalls and then to emails of just one bomb threat for a day. But the situation keeps escalating, today 13 bomb threats have been made.
