I agree 100% here.. This is probably the only problem i've found with beta
version of mailman, that the moderation has to be chosen on an individual 
basis,or that you can't just define you want a certain list to be read only.

Here's what I mean;
You start up X list
X list is supposed to be a low-traffic announcement list, something for you to 
announce releases, uptime,etc to your customers.
By default, any customer can post to X list,with no way to change this.
So, what you're left with is an open list that any customer can post to and 

Not exactly a smart idea.
