I believe the current owner of this list is on leave so can do much about these messages. In an Ideal world each user would send " set * nomail " to [log in to unmask] before they go on leave and then "set * mail " to [log in to unmask] when they return from leave, this should stop all message from all Jiscmail lists and resume them when they return.
See https://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/help/subscribers/faq.html#holiday and below for more information
Q. How do I stop messages when I go on holiday?
A. If you are going away, and want to temporarily halt email from a group, change your 'mail status' setting from MAIL to NOMAIL. To do this send the following command to [log in to unmask]
set * nomail
and when you return, send:
set * mail
I hope this helps

Yes it's very simple. I control several jiscmails and block a range of such comments

Is there a way for the list manager to somehow block automatic 'I am not in the office' replies to this list? While the points shared on this forum are usually informative, I don't find it helpful to be endlessly reminded that someone is out of the office for the duration, and with the holiday season upon us the influx of unwanted auto-junk-mail is only likely to increase.
Soap box duly relinquished.
