The list owner can do this on her own.  That's what the "Edit the
public HTML pages" link does in the list admin section.

If you want to do this for the list owner, you can copy listinfo.html
from templates/<lang>/ to lists/<listname>/<lang>/ and edit it to
remove the info about how to post to the list.

The order mailman searches for templates is described in

    # When looking for a template in a specific language, there are 4
    # places that are searched, in this order:
    # 1. the list-specific language directory
    #    lists/<listname>/<language>
    # 2. the domain-specific language directory
    #    templates/<list.host_name>/<language>
    # 3. the site-wide language directory
    #    templates/site/<language>
    # 4. the global default language directory
    #    templates/<language>
