It depends on what access you have and what you want to happen when
mail is sent to the list.

If your MTA uses aliases, you could remove or redirect the list's

You could move the lists/LISTNAME directory somewhere else.

If you are the list owner without access to the underlying
installation, then No, I don't think it's possible.
