The following is a quote from the introductory statements sent to new 
members of theos-talk. 

"The attempt will be to create a forum where students of Theosophy 
can explore its rich and profound doctrines, a forum free of 
hostility and personal attacks. The assumption is that Theosophy 
is real, a definite body of doctrines or system of thought that is 
worthy of study in its own right. There is no requirement that 
someone "believe in it", just that this is a place where it can be 
respectfully studied."

This list is not moderated, that is to say our posts appear 
automatically, without having to be approved by anyone first. But it 
does have an owner, Eldon, and he has responsibility for the list. 
If, in his judgement, the guidelines for the list are not being 
followed, he has the right to unsubscribe any member. This is a 
common practice on other lists, and does not depend upon any 
democratic process. 

Being a list owner is a big responsibility, and if it weren't for 
Eldon taking on this responsibility, there would be no list. I 
suggest that we apply the theosophical principle of obedience, and 
accept Eldon's judgement in this matter with gratitude to him, for 
shouldering the responsibility of providing a venue where we can 
pursue our studies mutually, according to the outlines for the list 
we joined.
