The scenario we have is that I am the list owner for
all the lists. And we have a controlled
subscription/unsubscription process whereas members
will need to fill out an online request form to
subscribe/unsubscribe, that I process manually.

so the common scenario is when someone requests to be
unsubscribed from all of the lists they are on, or
they leave the company and we need to remove them, we
need a way to quickly identify all the lists they are

I'm not the site admin and don't have access to the
command line scripts, unfortunately. But how do I log
on as the site admin to a list in order to view this?
I could get the site adming ID and password if needed.
