The problem is that the auto-respond text is sent directly
to the list participant who sent a message to the list. It
seems that the source of the auto-responder has subscribed
to the list and sends his reply when a new message arrives
in his inbox - or, he's somehow harvesting new messages from
the public list archives (web), in which case nothing can be
done by the list admins directly; here, the individual recipients
would have to block the auto-replies accordingly. However,
just hitting DELETE for those messages fixes the problem. :-)
