At this point I'm really not sure that's necessary. We've only really 
had the one thread recently and it petered out before turning into a 
giant flamewar.

Moderation is a royal PITA and to be avoided as much as possible. It 
slows down discussion and demands a lot of work from the moderators. It 
works for very low traffic lists - like announce lists- but that's about it.

Unless a serious and ongoing problem arises I'd recommend putting up 
with occasional off-topic discussion, and politely asking that it be 
moved elsewhere if it becomes an issue.
