i think the word "minimum" in this context applied to the number of 
lists, not the list content or the number of people on the list.

if the list has a tight focus i feel very comfortable telling people to 
move unrelated conversations elsewhere. i'm happy to enforce this, but i 
prefer to keep the list unmoderated.
