| Since Richard Fateman wants to send his students, maybe he could create
| and manage a moderated forum.  He could invite participation from c.l.l
| and then shut it down when the course is finished.

  He could also run a moderated news server where he has to approve
  articles before they are visible to other readers and before the articles
  posted locally are forwarded to the Net.  Various automated tools could
  be used for this purpose.  E.g., if Erann Gat responds to anything I
  write, that article and all articles with its message-ID in the References
  header can and should not be made visible to "protected" readers.

  Generally, yes.  Suitable notes to that effect are usually added.

Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
