I think Mark already alluded to this, but here are the details.

In Mailman 2, Privacy Options -> Spam Filters
enter regexp in the box, set to hold

It doesn't do exactly what you want (no stripping, holds the message
rather than discarding, and it will send notifications to the list
moderators).  But it might be better than nothing.

Not sure about this.  I believe the spam filtering occurs before
message editing.
