A few other people have experienced something similar, for a variety
of lists. Our best guess is that it is related to spam that
fradulently uses your email address as the sender. These bounce from
the mailing list back to you; your ISP sensibly rejects the bounced
messages; and the mailing list then interprets these as non-delivery
and disables your subscription. Or something along those lines, anyway.
I don't think we know how to fix it, sorry.
