Perhaps the easiest solution is to subdivide the list into two parts. The first part carries on the current tradition of PPI -- i.e., acts as more of a newsletter. Perhaps even develop a list of contributing editors of sorts, your "staff" so to speak. Continue to call this the Cyberjournal. The second listserv asks as a readers' forum, much like "Letters to the editor" in most newspapers. This is where individuals can carry on political debate and discuss the various items posted to the PPI list. Call this something like "CyberResponse" or "PPI Discussion" for example. This would give the best of both worlds -- those who are less interested in the point-counterpoint could simply not subscribe to the second listserv, and you would reduce the traffic in the first while easing your editorial work.
