I probably sounded much more draconian than I actually intended. The obvious design was to establish a rigidly moderated extropy-moderated@ as an additional list, and letting interested parties to subscribe to that (perhaps plus piping a procmail- or manually-filtered extropians@ into it), while letting the original list either slowly die in a pool of vomit, or go into remission by self-cleansing. Or something like that.
