New option: Leave Extropians as is, start exi-members list

Here's a possibility that I'd like to hear feedback on:

The current proposal is to make the Extropians list into a members-only
list for posting ability, but non-members could still read messages.

Instead, we could leave the Extropians list as it is, and create a new,
additional list, say ExI-Members, or Extropians-Special, or
Extropians-Insider (or whatever has the appropriate elitist ring to it :)
). That would leave this list more open, but mean we have a more filtered,
probably higher S/N list, with clear guidelines for members, so we would
still have a new members-only benefit to add to the other membership benefits.

Feedback welcome.
