IMHO the list server has nothing to do with this filtering.
The listserver has to send the messages sent to the list address to
every subscriber. It's the subscribers duty to not send garbage to
the mailing lists.

This can't be the task of a listserver because there are no standards
how to distinguish autoreplies and normal messages (about autoreplies :)
so the autoreply program should be configured to not send autoreplies
to messages that originate from mailing lists.
