Now that the email below went through I was able to re-subscribe people.
Apparently this brilliant setting affects the 10 people with yahoo.*,
ymail.*,, and email addresses who are on
this mailing list.

If this is you... please use a different email address for this mailing
list because the next time one of you sends email to the list, all of you
will get kicked off the list again.
