There are so many different published descriptions of the purpose of the
new list. I wonder if the various authors might confer and agree to
publish only one.
As it stands, I suspect the purpose is to allow the topics and persons
which the particular speakers wish to hear and to disallow those which
each wishes not to hear.

You may be right. However, Stephen certainly has as much right as you
to protest topics which displease him.
Given the open nature of this list, I would expect Stephen to refrain
from joining discussions of which he disapproves and you will join
discussions of which you approve. And you will both voice your various
disapprovals from time to time.
In any case, in the long run, both lists will be defined by practical
consensus, by those discussions in which the two memberships actually
participate, not by regulation.
