[Mailman-Users] Wish: Spam by vacation notifications in Mailman

Front-end your mailman lists with something like SpamAssassin and add a rule
that kills these vacation replies.

The real culprit is the idiot who sets his filter to respond to all mail (as
opposed to mail sent directly to them).  Even then a responsible person only
send the message once in response to any one individual!

Just my opinion - Jon Carnes
