Subject: Feeding Stray Cats

How about some sort of soft moderation that forwards all posts, but sets the
reply-to on off-topic posts to something other than the list itself?  That
way it doesn't really function as censorship, but does act to squelch the
thoughtless and accidental flame wars and run-on threads that decrease the
SNR.

It also makes the replier think about what they are replying to and whether
it's on-topic.

Or you could also subscribe to Secunia.
