Mailman 2.1.5 and up have a "Discard all messages marked defer"
checkbox on the admindb page.

There is a bin/discard command line script that allows something like

bin/discard data/heldmsg-list-*

When you figure that out, you can sell it and make a fortune :-)

What you can do is integrate spam filtering in your incoming mail
process and filter it out before it gets to Mailman.
