That NEVER works.  "Naughty" folks are going to want to get their say.  
If they feel like they are being marginalised by being "forced" onto a 
lesser traffic list, they'll usually just post to the main list anyway.  
Rather than have anyone waste their time moderating the list, my 
suggestion (again) is that people who are annoyed by the volume or 
content of posts simply use a filter on their mail client.  I generally 
use Thunderbird these days and it literally took no more than a couple 
of minutes to set up the filtering.  It's been quite effective for me.
