If you are having a problem with spam-bounces causing subscriptions to be 
disabled, you can work-around/solve the false-disabling-problem by changing 
your list's parameters for automatic subscription disabling to a higher 
number of bounces.  It will mean that your list will email real disabled 
addresses a few more times before they are finally automatically disabled, 
but in most cases that's not a big concern.
