*This* problem, at least, I imagine can be solved by an email to
the groups support people.  I'd be surprised if they didn't pay
attention to someone who tells them that he's getting the
moderator emails (i.e. SPAM) to a mailing list that he has no
control over (and doesn't want).

Reagrdless, I concur that this is a PITA.
