Nah. List gets big, problem goes away.

This would make discussions more drawn out and more difficult
to participate in. Is the added anonymity worth this degrading
communications in this way?

Again: list gets big, problem goes away.

Anyway, I think the list owner should run the technical
aspects of the list as a dictator, consulting the list members
is unnecessary as long as people can easily unsubscribe
(on the list´s home page) and anonymity is preserved.

IMHO adding a delay, message corruption, time warps or playing
funny games with the recipient lists for each message are
all most effective and interesting if the collective as
a whole doesn't really know which rules are in effect at
any given time.

I think the most important goal at the moment is to find
more people to play with us, and possibly some sort of "topic"
so the discussions will move beyond "what's this?" and "why
are we doing things this way?".
