[Mailman-Users] Uncaught list.remove error on posting

One of the subscribers to one of my lists turned off mail delivery and
also set `not metoo'.

This caused the error below.

(I've mangled the DNS domain names in the message below to stop the
subscriber and/or the list submission address getting spammed.)
