I've found that most folks administering mailing lists tend to advocate
that folks use a personal email address on them, not a professional one,
as it tends to free the list from a glut of 'Out of Office' notices,
rediculously long disclaimer footers, and other such things; this seems
particularly relevant for NANOG.

With that in mind and noting a goodly number of folks using gmail, among
others, i'm not sure the cost:benefit would be there?

There's other ways to moderate content on a mailing list....
