Not really. A list admin can set a member to nomail and change the
members password so the member can't log in, but there's no way for a
list admin without additional access to the Mailman installation to
find the original password before changing it so it can be changed

Also, members could still post even though set to nomail so you'l
probably need to moderate them too.
