In relation to reacting to off-topic posts, I've found the following advice from other list servers useful to me:

If you believe a posting is off-topic, reply to the poster *privately*. If you wish, you can also copy the list server manager on the reply.

Hi, Fred, cohousing-L list manager here with little time to reply.

The "Emergency vigil" message WAS inappropriate.  Please do not post
messages that do not relate to cohousing.  BTW the message on 6/16
"A World Beyond Capitalism " was barely related so I approved it
when I had little time to consider it...  Note that I only sometimes have
a chance to approve /disapprove of messages - depends if they are too big,
from an non subscribed address etc.  Also note that messages related to an
off topic are also off topic so lets get back to talking about cohousing
and treat that "vigil" message as an error...

There were 3 messages related to it that were rejected and I decided not
to approve.

Fred who has little time for manging the list for a couple more weeks.
