Here is what I did:

1. Got the list of email addresses subscribed to LIG.  Some regular
expression magic to eliminate the names and just retain the domain names.

2. uniq and sort the list.

3. go through the list and run /usr/bin/mx on it to see the MX server.

4. Grep for namezero and voila!

5. rm the offending user.
