I have found that putting the first few users who use broken  
autoresponders into a pillory has some deterrent effect, but memories  
need to be refreshed occasionally.

If for piddling legal or other constraints such as not finding a  
pillory in working order prevent you from using that approach, I tend  
to set "no mail" for those uses, and if there is reason to believe  
that it is a site wide problem, I may bar users from that site, or at  
least threaten to, always informing the postmaster of the site with  
the broken autoresponders.

I also direct people to my out-of-date rant on the subject.
