Yup. Happens to me all the time.

Improve your anti-spam measures within your MTA. Look for tools like
SpamAssassin, D-SPAM, SpamBayes, etc.... You can find some pointers
to such programs in the FAQ Wizard.
Beyond that, no -- Mailman is working as designed, and listowners
will get more spam that they have to deal with, in order that
listmembers will get less spam. That's one of the prices you pay for
being a listowner.
