I'd probably use something like 
    find_member example.com > outfile
which will give you the email address and list memberships; this can
be fed to remove_members. That may need some tidy-up, though.

Another approach I might consider would be to use list_lists -b, and a
while loop; something like: (untested)

        list_lists -b | while read L
            find_member -l ${L} example.com > found-${L}
            remove_members --fromall --nouserack -f found-${L} ${L}
            rm found-${L}

Maybe skipping the outfile, but I like outfiles, rather than

maybe feeding stuff through tee(1), although logs/subscribe should log
those, appropriately.

(I'd probably use the second suggestion, myself, having tested it
first with a regexp that wouldn't do much damage.)

''meetings, n.:
    A place where minutes are kept and hours are lost.''
