Yes, I first (and wrongly) thought this could be a misconfigured auto-
responder, a bad gateway configuration or something like that but now I 
see this is something that is done automatically and randomly.

I would be against forcing the usage of signed e-mails for mailing lists 
which, by the way, can be also automated and used to send spam or "faked" 
messages: you don't solve a problem like this with just GPG/PGP, you need 
to apply additional counter-measures.
