All three of those would be wrong.  The coolgoose.com server is
supposed to be sending bounce messages to the SMTP envelope sender
address, which is set to "owner-vorbis at xiph.org" on all the messages
handled by the mailing list.  If the mailing list software is
sufficiently clever, it would be able to figure out which subscriber
is having the problem, and automatically unsubscribe him.  Since
this list isn't using anything like ezmlm's VERP, I doubt it's clever
enough, but a human could probably intervene.
