Why make the general list read only?  Anyway, I like the idea of
multiple highly-focused lists that get posted to a general p6p list.
Also, when people try posting to a disbanded list, instead of just
getting an auto-reply, their message could be posted to the general list.
And mild moderation is a must to prevent reliving the sins of p5p.  In
short, I agree entirely with Uri.
