Many scientists in my lab just look into .general due to lack of time 
to monitor the whole hierarchy. And, it is interesting to discuss 
life_science_ apart from your specific research interest. However, 
reading spam is not interesting, and many collegues unsubscribe.

So, I support a general.moderated group. You don't have to rename 
general to .kindergarten :-)
