I like the idea, and I think it can be considered a good starting
point to solve this big (at least from my POV) problem.

Maybe instead of Board members (that, like someone suggested could
take their time), it could be useful let Board nominating someone
else, out the board, to do this.

Meanwhile I think this isn't censorship: one of the best tools we have
to communicate are out M-Ls, and the only way to keep them working is
to control way: at the end people will be free to talk about fedora
and everything connected.
