Has the list been published? How do people know if they are on it or not?

If their post gets deleted, they know they're on the list/not on the list.

It'd be great if I could make a user group that isn't allowed to edit this page, but I realize that's asking way too much.

You could write a Mediawiki extension or two to do that, i.e. allow people to create/manage their own groups, and pick which groups get read/edit permission in their userspace.

You'd want to introduce the notion of a "Group owner", and allow users to create groups with themselves as owner, and then add/remove members and delete groups they own, but not groups owned by others or groups owned by the system.

Go buy yourself a book on PHP and give it a go. Even if this site never accepts the end product, you could learn a valuable skill.

Lol, all that so I can hold a conversation on RationalWiki without encountering trolls and blowhards!

Nah, the current system works fine for me, but thanks for the suggestion.

All that and you might learn something which could turn out useful.
