Presumably this is because the domain is "jbworld" and not
"www.jburroughs.org" or some other valid domain.

This url comes from web_page_url for the list (mailman in this case).
This in turn is generated for the list by "plugging" DEFAULT_URL_HOST
(or some other url host from VIRTUAL_HOSTS) into the pattern
DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN at list creation time.

It is not clear how this got messed up in your case, but fix_url.py may
fix it assuming your VIRTUAL_HOSTS dictionary is valid.

for additional info.
