Why not, when sending usenet posts to the list, merely change the 'from' address to yourself (or a special-purpose mailbox, or something)?  This would require only changes to stuff you made yourself (the usenet -> list processing).

So basically there's nothing you can do. Your process posts from usenet like any other post. Treating those differently would require source modification on the Mailman server.

You could set respond_to_post_requests to No, but then email posters wouldn't get notifications either.

Or you could try to use Mailman's usenet gateway if the host supports it.
