In the future if you have questions concerning the mailing list
administration it is better to send your correspondence to the mailing
list owner.  Add "-owner" to the address.  In this case the mailing
list owner address is address@hidden and that will reach the
humans who administer the mailing lists.

If your account is being disabled due to too many bounces it means
that your mail server is bouncing messages from the mailing list.
Mailman has an algorithm that it uses to determine if the account is
alive or dead.  One bounce every now and again won't unsubscribe you.
But if are more bounces than the threshold then it thinks that your
account is no longer alive and disables the address.

You can always unsubscribe and subscribe yourself at any time.  But if
email is bouncing then that will be the problem because you won't be
able to answer the confirmation messages.

Since this discussion won't be of interest to the members here I will
take the discussion offline and try to work toward a resolution.
