Some options could be:

1) remove the list.

2) set the list to emergency moderate (and optionally discard/hold the

3) If you want it to work but the owner to not have access, change the
passwords. If you use #2, you'll probably want to do this as well since
the owner can just turn traffic back on.

Do you want the list to actually accept incoming messages (and hold
them) or have the system bounce them back? Could set all non-member
postings to be rejected along with a rejection message.

Remove the list aliases (/etc/aliases I'm assuming) which would cause
the inbound messages to hard bounce back to the sender.
