I think the problem is that you are confusing two things:
- A technical means to prevent people from talking on IRC by using
certain privileged commands on a channel.
- The practice of having somebody direct discussion.
The latter is what Helen and Erinn were referring to. Both the IRC
meetings have been moderated in the second sense, and moderation in the
first sense has not (to my knowledge) been used on the channel.
