Long story short, the admin responsible for that list had to get people to stop querying it IMMEDIATELY. This sort of thing has happened before; the list in that situation failed in the other direction (approve everything), and people kept sending queries YEARS after they were supposed to stop. The only way to force the issue was to make the list utterly and completely unusable, as in 'if you use this list, you will reject everything.' It was a train wreck, but it did get people to stop sending queries.
