Seems a bit harsh. Question is how you want the list to behave- to 
facilitate discussion or simply to make announcements. If the latter is 
preferred, then yes, setting all members to moderated will prevent them from 

OTOH, if the list's purpose is discussion, moderating all members becomes a 
bottleneck. In that case, user training is often the best route; explaining 
when it's appropriate to send to the list and when it's not. And there will 
-always- be errors.  (Scholars differ on whether the default action should 
be reply-to-list or reply-to-sender and there's nothing to be gained by 
trying to resolve that here.)
