This sort of content management seems (a) out of the scope of mailman,
and (b) an unrealistic expectation.

Primarily, there's nothing stopping a user from just starting a new
thread; email doesn't actually have any concept of 'threads'. The only
thing you might conceivably be able to do is limit the rate of posting
from a given user.
