Just to summarize the immediate issue:
 - messages from about a month ago were being bounced back to the posters
 - the address associated with the 'borken system was removed Oct. 20
 - there is nothing that can be done at to prevent the bogus
     bounces, as the bounces were not routed through here

Scyld runs a bunch of Linux and Beowulf-related mailing lists, with all
of them moderated or posting limited to members.  I average about 40
minutes a day moderating and adding to the spam filters.

Even with that care, we have been on a number of RBLs.
