Fortunately, not really necessary.  

The 'president' shell login (or whatever it was) was nuked immediately
upon Reiber leaving office in 2008, and an /etc/aliases entry repointing
any arriving mail to volunteers at lists.svlug.org instituted to catch any
actually desirable mail.

I've been gradually finding and losing the subscriptions and
press-release arrangements, on and off, since 2008.

Mentioning the lingering issue at SVLUG general meetings wouldn't be
useful, as the attendees didn't create the problem and don't have much
to do with it.
