You're in luck... I wrote a bit of code last night to keep a copy
of the last bounce message we've received from all addresses.

The bounce handler just sees that you are bouncing messages. You
are not the only one in this situation, there are quite a few other
people getting kicked off debian lists because of this problem,
but there's no easy solution in sight.

We always email out on removing someone, so that people know
they are being removed. There could be fake bounce messages being
sent, or maybe only some messages bounces. There's no harm in
trying to send that information email out.
