Why are the list's members at all?

It's probably fine if they are members.

So, as long as you don't have things like @child_listname in the
"everyone" list's accept_these_nonmembers, you can just remove the
problem posters from that setting and their posts will then be handled
according to generic_nonmember_action.

They will still receive posts to "everyone" via their
regular_include_lists membership and will still be able to post to their
lists of which they are members, but not to the "everyone" list.
