I think this might be possible in Mailman 3 (but would be a new
feature, not implemented yet), but not in Mailman 2.

I suppose it's not socially possible to moderate (or even temporary
remove posting privileges) from the folks who abuse "everyone"?

Another possibility would be to create a garbage list, and set
reply-to to the garbage list on everyone.  Then people who just
reply-to the nearest list post will see their posts disappear into a
black hole, and you can tell people who complain to "check the
archives of Blackhole, if it's there, you abused 'reply-to everyone'
-- don't do that".  People who intentionally write to everyone ...
maybe a quick whack with a 2x4 would help?
