It sounds similar to the Sun-Managers list, which has been around since
'89, and I've been the maintainer of since 2000.  Same policy (management
questions only, nothing that can be answered/solved via Google or RTFM,
no chatting or discussions, etc).  


I don't host it, though.  I did for a couple of years, but now it runs on
hardware up at the University of Toronto (where the creator of the list,
John DiMarco, works).  Over a gig a day of outgoing email was straining my
poor little Ultra5 at the time. 8-)

Man, I just realized that I have a habit of spreading myself almost to thin
on all this "help people" stuff. 8-)
