Sure.  If you just don't list AES in your preferences, nobody will use it when encrypting to you.  Similarly, if you have personal-cipher-preferences and you leave off AES, you won't use it when encrypting to someone else.  You can do that for any cipher that isn't 3DES.  3DES is the only special one here.
