Perhaps instead of creating a seperate moderated list, someone can offer the service of selecting high quality posts from this list and reposting it - a "best of everything" list. This may serve people who find this list too high volume. The authors of the papers cited in the original invitation, Bostrom, Schmidhuber, and Tegmark, all subscribe to the list but probably no longer follow it closely because of the volume.
