Check the archives for a patch that lets you do something like this.  I 
think someone made a patch that bypasses the password check for 
unsubscribes. If you can't find it, let me know and I'll pinpoint the part 
of code you need to change (the code is very readable and easy to edit).

Check out the "Bounce options" page in the Admin interface:
  "Action when critical or excessive bounces are detected"
