Worldwide indeed.  A quick google for that name throws up debian
development lists, fedora core, gmane, SecurityFocus' Secure Shell,
freebsd, Full Disclosure and the Debian Brazil list.

I've given in and, using a combination of wget, Perl, grep, cut, sort,
uniq, vi and eyeballs, produced a list of all those addresses which
have posted to the list at least twice in the memory of the archives
(which go back to 2001).  I'll email it to Tim and he, as list admin,
can remove any address in that list from the list of subscribers.
Those that are left are 'silent subscribers', one of whom is
redirecting email to petsupermarket.  Send an email to each of those
with a unique identifier in the subject line, see which one comes back
to you from petsupermarket, and that's the email to remove.

Oh, and post your results - I'm sure other lists out there are wanting
to find out which is the rogue address... :-)

Have fun,
