Should We Moderate the Atlanta Joomla Mailing List?

Hi All

Apologies for the spam message that just went out about the flu.

Currently the mailing list is open which means that anyone can send out a message.

As the group members, do you think we should start moderating messages before they are sent?

I hate to, but it seems like we need to if we want to keep this a forum about Joomla.

Moderate as a last resort.
If this trend increases then a decision can be made. In the mean time additional spam will just add to the existing annoyance.

I think that a few messages here and there between members is not a problem.

As the group expands and traffic increases, we will likely need to revisit this opinion.

Is there the possibility of moderating only the users that abuse the open policy?

I know this might be off of the subject a bit but, in yesterdays emails, one of our members suggested allowing people to link together in social groups. I seem to recall seeing one or two components promoting this ability in Joomla.

Maybe we should explore this possibility and have a meetup to discuss what it would take to build this capability into the meetup framework…

Kind Regards,
