Do you have command line access to the server that hosts your Mailman
installation? I.e. can you log in to a shell? If you do, you need to
find Mailman's bin/ directory and run bin/rmlist to remove lists. run
"bin/rmlist -h" for more details.

If you do not have sufficient access to find and run this command on the
server, you need to contact the people who do.
