Annoying, isn't it? Addresses that go bad are the bane of any list
manager. If you stare at the Received: headers you can usually see what's
going on. In this case, the message was received and queued at
axe.humboldt.edu on Jun 17. So even if you removed them a week ago, it's
not amazing that you're still getting bounces.

Yes, they are telling you that they saved your message and while they
haven't been able to send it yet, they will keep trying. They'll probably
keep telling you about it, too. It will time out eventually, at which
point they'll tell you that they gave up.
If you put a bulk precedence on the messages, the sites really shouldn't be
giving you such informative reports. Then again, Precedence: is not
standard, so some sites will not follow it.

Ignore it. Call up the people at the remote site and ask them to clear
their queue of messages from you. Blow up your computer.
Honestly, you have no control over the message once it leaves your site. I
just have Procmail filter all of the junk bounces into a separate
newsgroup. (Oops, I meant folder. Gnus blurs the distinction.)
