I just tried to set one up... You are right, there does not seem to
be any "good" options for doing announce only.

Here is one possibility, under "Details" of addresses of members accepted
for posting (field below "restrict posting to members"):

o If member_posting_only is 'yes', then entries added here will have 
  posting privilege in addition to list members. 
o If member_posting_only is 'no', then only the posters listed here will 
  be able to post without admin approval. 

Put the admin's e-mail in this box, and set member posting to "no".
