... the only problem with moderation is that it requires one to read those items
that you believe are "political rants." If, in fact, a steward of this list is
performing such labor upon such a thing, one could imagine the community
being grateful. However, it would seem to me that two alternate options exist.
The first is to set criteria for participation in the forum -- say, only to
professors (and perhaps students under their tutelage for issues directly
arising out of the same). I believe that was something in the nature of Eugene's
rule. I call such a thing a "professor list." Finally, there is a free market
solution: email filters. If you set one of these, you never see the mails. It's
quite amazing how that works.
Each rule, of course, has its own costs and benefits. Just passing along some
suggestions as a person who also thinks about email fora of his own. My
apologies if the contribution isn't helpful.
Regards and thanks.

Subject: Change of one list member's status to "moderated"
One list member, despite my polite request off-list, has continued to post an
unreasonable number of messages, some of which in the past have been off-topic
political rants. I've changed that member's status to "moderated," so that
further messages have to be approved by one of the co-moderators of the list. If
anyone wants details or thinks my action is unjustified, feel free to contact
