There is also a find_member script that will tell you what lists a 
person is subscribed to.  It's new though, having come out in version

So, assuming that you're running csh as your shell:

   cd $prefix/bin
   foreach i ( `./find_member user at example.com | grep "^   "`)
      echo user at example.com | ./remove_members -f - $i

or somesuch.  You could wrap this with yet another foreach loop that
cats the contents of a file containing bounced addresses, even...
