This proposal is identical to letting anyonepost and then banning people who
are problems. Except it has all this moderation overhead.

Remember when Bruce put someone-or-other (Dave Cinege?) into "digest mode"?
He could post all he wanted, but the list only got one message a day. I
think that's a much nicer way to accomplish the same ends w/o banning someone.
