Actually, this mailing list neither adds in a "Mailing-List: ..." header
nor a "Precedence: bulk" header, which are the two easiest ways to spot a
modern mailing list. I'd suggest you complain to the mailing list
managers, not the poor people whose [most likely] properly configured
autoresponders aren't being given the information they should be given.
