It's aggravating.

Here's one possible solution:

- we export the individual email addresses of django-developers subscribers — 
assuming Google Groups allows that
- we write a script that sends an email to each of them with a unique sender or 
subject — as far as I can tell these are the only parts of the original email 
that make it into BitBounce's spam
- when we get the BitBounce spam, we can map the sender or subject to the 
original email address, then we unsubscribe it

We can make tests by writing to aphiso...@gmail.com 
<mailto:aphiso...@gmail.com> — the address indirectly subscribed to 
django-developers that we're trying to remove.

It seems that BitBounce's spam takes a while to arrive. Yesterday I emailed the 
list at 23:24 and got the BitBounce spam at 00:00 (CET). Perhaps it's a hourly 
cron, perhaps just a slow queue.
