I like the idea of a list for hacking stuff at Noisebridge.  The
original idea was -discuss would be that, but obviously it's failed at
being so.  (And maybe that's not a bad thing, the community probably
needs somewhere to vent and chat.)

Moderated could work, but is a lot of work.  As an alternative:

How about a list charter that says what it's for, allow unmoderated
posting by subscribers by default, and set the moderated flag for
subscribers who fail to play by the rules.

Either way is fine by me.  If you go for moderated I'd strongly
recommend having 2-4 deputies who all agree on the rules of the road,
so that approvals aren't gated on one person's sleep/work schedule.
