[CentOS] Mailinglist moderation

I think the time (150 messages and counting) has come to ask someone of 
the CentOS team to start moderating this list. I don't mind people 
discussing whatever topic they like, but not at the expense of the 
mailinglist and its members.

I don't think the topic really doesn't matter in these discussions, and if 
done in private they would stand for long anyway.

I would propose someone who has authority of moderating people to send out 
a warning when a thread has to end (eg. when people start repeating 
themselves or insults become the main theme) and if necessary temporarily 
moderate these people/the thread.

I think the mere existence of such a moderator could be sufficient to end 
lasting threads like the previous.

Kind regards,
