That AOL sent their Feedback Loop message to me is therefore part of the violation of my terms. So whose terms ends up governing when they're in conflict?

When you sign up for the feedback loop, you do so under the TOS of the feedback loop.  If their user violates your TOS by reporting your list traffic as spam, that doesn't change the TOS of the feedback loop that you signed up for.

Two lefts make a U-turn, not a right.  ;-)

On that subject, I agree with you.
